Community Care Connection: Hawaii Literacy

Hawaii Literacy Hawaii Literacy
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - This edition of "Community Care Connection" features Hawaii Literacy, a nonprofit organization that seeks to help people gain knowledge and skills by providing literacy and lifelong learning services. 

Hawaii Literacy's five literacy programs focus on those with the lowest literacy skills and help disadvantaged children prepare for and succeed in school, give adults a second chance to learn to read and write, and train hundreds of literacy volunteers to teach in our communities. 

The organization provides books, mentors, literacy promotion, and the skills needed to break cycles of poverty and under-education. Hawaii Literacy has supported more than 400 volunteers annually and by private businesses, foundations, partner agencies, individuals, and civic groups who share a commitment to full literacy in Hawaii. Last year, Hawaii Literacy helped 2,900 adults and keiki in need improve their reading, writing, school, and life skills, and build the foundation for a better life and future.

Suzanne Skjold, Hawaii Literacy's executive director, spoke to Jennifer Robbins to share more information.
