Mission Statement

LiteracyCNY Mission: To provide adults in Central New York with the literacy tools and skills that they need to be contributing, productive, and engaged members of the community. We do this by advocating for adult education, providing instruction, and partnering with other community based agencies. Improving Adult Literacy makes our community stronger. LiteracyCNY advocates for adult education, provides adult literacy instruction, and partners with other community-based agencies to transform lives.


LiteracyCNY provides instruction to adults that read at or below a 6th grade reading level, targeting adults that have the lowest literacy levels in our community. LiteracyCNY offers small group instruction provided by credentialed instructors and supplemented with individualized tutoring, and matches adult learners with professionally trained and managed volunteer tutors who assist them to become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency.
