The READ Center is changing lives by helping adults with low literacy develop the skills they need to reach their goals as employees, family members, and citizens in our community. READ has been offering free education services to adults in the greater Richmond area for 37 years, and currently provides classes, one-to-one tutoring instruction, and community programs. When adults learn to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they gain tools that can help lift themselves out of poverty, low educational attainment, poor housing and job prospects, healthcare issues, and more. Everyone needs and deserves a literate life.
The Richmond-based Excellence in Children's Early Language and Literacy (ExCELL) program brings together families, educators, literacy specialists, and community resources to support children's early language and literacy development.
