The Literacy Alliance of Northeast Florida’s mission is to increase literacy awareness and improve adult literacy in northeast Florida through formal instruction and volunteer-based tutoring.

  • About Us
    Since beginning in 1969 as Learn to Read Jacksonville, the Literacy Alliance of Northeast Florida has provided free literacy instruction to adults seeking to improve their reading, writing, and math skills.

    The Literacy Alliance first formed to provide one-on-one volunteer tutoring. Today, we continue to offer that powerful level of instruction, but have also grown and changed with the needs of our students to include computer assisted instruction, small group classes, as well as instruction in basic math skills, financial literacy, health literacy, and career coaching.

    We are the largest adult literacy program in the community and one of the largest in the state providing instruction to over 500 adults every year who receive over 20,000 hours of learning. And, they find success. 89% of our students regularly increase their reading levels or meet a personal development goal.
  • Our Impact
