Literacy Coalition of Central Texas
The Literacy Coalition of Central Texas (LCCT) improves the quality and availability of literacy instruction services. We support and coordinate literacy programs outside the public K-12 educational system, including adult literacy, GED classes, English language instruction for adults, family and early childhood literacy programs, and specialized literacy training for health literacy, workforce literacy, computer literacy and financial literacy. The Coalition creates a more literate Central Texas by providing the resources necessary to address this hidden, under-funded network of vital literacy programs.
The Literacy Coalition connects literacy organizations in our region to the funding, advocacy, professional development and service support they need to increase the availability of high quality programs. While there are 70 organizations in Central Texas working to make individuals more literate, LCCT alone is working to coordinate, strengthen and grow our community’s literacy system so that we can reverse the increasing trend of illiteracy.
The Literacy Coalition of Central Texas’ programming is organized in the following four goal areas:
- Improve the quality of instruction in regional literacy programs (both internally and externally)
- Provide direct instructional programs to address critical gaps in services
- Conduct awareness and PR campaigns for the issue of literacy and LCCT and outreach to build community engagement
- Provide capacity building and support services for the network of literacy service providers
