Literacy

Literacy is defined as “using printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one’s goals, and develop one’s knowledge and potential.”
(2003 National Assessment of Adult Literacy)

“Today, in Oklahoma, more than 400,000 adults can't read. That number represents more than 20 percent of our state's adult population.”

The New Dimension Literacy Council want to change that. If you'd like to help, we'd love to hear from you.
