Foreword Week of Giving Twenty Twenty Four

Everyone has a story to tell.

High quality adult education and clear, accessible information help write the foreword to a successful story. At Literacy Works, our programs advance literacy education and clear communication so that our community can move forward, equipped with the education and information they need to thrive.


Join us for our Week of Giving May 13th-17th as we uplift literacy, equity, and the accomplishments of our community. Throughout the week we will be highlighting volunteers and organizations making a difference, as well as the work of our Community Literacy and Clear Language Lab programs.

We invite you to follow along through email and on our social media as we tell the story of our vision that one day, literacy will be recognized as a basic human right, supporting people along their journey to read, write, and interpret the world.

Below are some of the key events and topics you can look forward to learning about during the week. Be sure to join us!



  • Learn about how to get involved with Literacy Works and connect with a neighbor in your community as a volunteer tutor.


  • Get inspired during A Book That Changed My Life at Sketchbook Brewery on May 17th at 7:30 pm! We will wrap up our Week of Giving with our signature storytelling event.

We have set a goal to raise $35,000 this week. Help us reach our goal so our members and clients can reach theirs.
