Literacy Austin

The mission of Literacy Austin is to provide basic literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction for adults, age 17 and older, who read below the fifth-grade level. Literacy Austin is now the largest provider of free adult basic literacy classes and ESL classes for adults in Central Texas. The Impact Austin grant will provide a classroom build-out in their unused building space and hire a part-time off-site coordinator. These measures will enable the agency to respond more quickly to adult learners’ requests for services and reduce the waiting list. As a result, Literacy Austin will be able to tutor 49 percent more clients on site and meet the needs of more individuals in other areas of Austin. For more information, visit www.literacyaustin.org
