Literacy Outreach Programs
72% of adults in Niagara Falls read at a fourth grade functional level, because of this literacy is a large focus of our work. Targeting literacy through outreach projects will better prepare city residents for college and/or careers, and well as further develop the workforce. A productive city is dependent on a literate society. If we support reading and the development of reading for individuals from birth to adulthood, we can make a difference. Our literacy programs include the Literacy Programs through the 21st Century Grant and Linking Literacy to Movement.
