CONGRATULATIONS TO

LITERACY FOR ADULTS IN BREVARD (LAB)

       CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF SERVICE                                       IN BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA

1971 - 2021

WHAT AN AMAZING NIGHT!

Volunteers from the 1970’s & the ensuing years, statewide supporters of literacy, our donors and some of our students came to celebrate the  success of  thousands of people  who made literacy part of their lives, their families’ lives, & their communities as well.

Pictured here:  Greg Smith, Executive Director of Florida Literacy Coalition and David Stewart,  the heart of Literacy in Brevard for almost 40 years.

Literacy for Adults in Brevard (LAB) Inc. is a group of trained local volunteers who teach literacy skills to adults to help them achieve their full potential within their families, their jobs and their communities.

NEED TO KNOW

Literacy for Adults in Brevard (LAB) is

 a non-profit organization which this year celebrates 50 YEARS OF ACTIVE VOLUNTEER SERVICE IN BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA. Trained volunteer tutors meet with their adult students for 90 minutes a week in the various libraries throughout Brevard County to teach literacy skills to adults who cannot read.

A LAB STUDENT could be an international college graduate who needs to learn English in order to get a job in the United States. A LAB student might be a grandmother whose own children graduated from high school but she herself never learned to read: now she wants to learn to read to her grandchildren.  Our LAB student could be someone who had to drop out of school for whatever reason. Our LAB student could be a retired welding inspector, with a successful career, who never learned to read.


LAB VOLUNTEER TUTORS provide free individualized ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION that focuses on the learner’s goals. Typical adults in our program struggle to read a menu, fill out a job application, or read a bedtime story to their children. Others left school before graduation and want to obtain their GED to improve employment opportunities. Many of our adult learners have families in which English was not the primary language spoken and now they want to improve their English skills.
