Adults with low-level literacy skills face many challenges each day. Simple tasks such as paying bills, applying for employment, or helping their children with their homework can be frightening. Often feeling ashamed and alone, the adults typically try to hide their lack of skills even from close friends and family.
By helping these adults improve their literacy skills, the Volusia Literacy Council can bring about amazing changes in their quality of life. New opportunities open up for them as parents, employees, and members of their communities.
