Welcome to the Brazos Valley Literacy Coalition. We are a coalition of community members and organizations in the Brazos Valley who are concerned about literacy. Illiteracy affects us all. We know that literacy is the key to a better life, a better community, and a better world. We welcome your input, ideas and support.

The mission of the Brazos Valley Literacy Coalition is four-fold:

  1. To help better the lives of adults in our community who suffer from functional illiteracy.

  2. To help adults in our community learn English so that they can understand medical professionals, talk with their child’s teacher, get a job or advance in the one they have, and keep safe in the workplace.

  3. To help young children (0-5) gain a foundation of literacy skills needed to enter school ready to succeed.

  4. To help school aged children advance in reading skills to read on or above grade level.
