Thank you for visiting the Friends of Literacy website. We are excited to be in our 26th year of serving Knox County adults who are undereducated or illiterate and helping them gain the education and skills to adequately support themselves and their families.
Adults need literacy skills to read a medicine label, help their children with homework, balance a checkbook, or fill out a job application. A high school credential increases earnings an average of $10,000 per year and significantly lowers the risk of unemployment. Friends of Literacy helps people overcome the obstacles that prevent them from being full and equal participants in our community.
As you learn more about our organization, we hope you will recognize ways you can partner with us, as a donor, as a volunteer, or as an ambassador, sharing information about Friends of Literacy with your friends and neighbors. Together, we can help ensure that all residents of Knox County have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
