Hawaii Literacy's mission is to help people gain knowledge and skills by providing literacy and lifelong learning services. We believe that literacy is at the core of having the opportunity for a better life, and that it is never too late for an adult to learn to read and write. We believe that well-trained and dedicated volunteers can successfully teach adults to read and write. We believe that parents are their children's first and best teachers, and that family support can help any parent, regardless of literacy level, help their child succeed. We believe that greater literacy builds stronger families and communities.
