Subcommittees

Our work is guided by our task group and our three subcommittees:

  • The Adult/Workplace Literacy Subcommittee's focus is the complex issues affecting adults who are struggling with low literacy. We help service agencies and employers assess their workplaces and improve their practices, and foster opportunities to help staff improve their literacy skills.
  • The Family Literacy Subcommittee focuses on supports for parents and children. We know that children's best opportunities for language development happen much earlier than many parents realize, and we help parents understand their role in helping their children learn.
  • The Health Literacy Subcommittee looks for ways to promote better communication between health care providers and patients.

If you have an interest in one of these committees, you are welcome to sit in on a meeting and/or join the committee. Please contact us.
