Literacy in Action (LIA) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization that promotes literacy and lifelong learning. LIA develops and supports community-based programs that emphasize adult literacy, the acquiring of basic literacy skills, and non-formal education for both children and adults.
We believe that every person has skills they are able to share or teach. This exchange of knowledge between individuals is at the core of our approach to learning.
Our objectives are to:
Understand and address the literacy needs of our region.
Foster innovative lifelong learning programs.
Work with volunteers to meet the unique needs of adult learners.
