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

  • To help adults in our community who suffer from functional illiteracy by providing educational resources and trained volunteer tutors/mentors to help these adults learn to read.
  • 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.
  • To support parents of school aged children to help their child advance in reading skills to read on or above grade level.
  • To train caregivers of young children (0-5) in how caregivers can foster a foundation of literacy skills needed by children to enter school ready to succeed.
