When a child reads, a community succeeds.
Based in New York City, Literacy INC calls illiteracy the 'invisible crisis'. LINC connects resources that already exist in the community, leveraging them to surround families with literacy-rich environments. Aiming to nurture a culture of literacy at the neighborhood level, LINC uses family programs, early childhood parent workshops, and reading buddies programs to generate lasting change.
LINC harnesses the power that exists in every community to make literacy a right of all children. LINC engages parents and community organizations behind the common goal of supporting children in learning how to read. LINC creates a culture where reading is highly visible and valued. LINC believes that our children’s educational success is their path out of poverty, and the key to achievement.
