Project Literacy at UCLA
Project Literacy is a non-profit community service organization dedicated to improving literacy rates in the Los Angeles region through one-on-one tutoring for both youths and adults. The four communities ProLit serves: Watts, Mar Vista, Vernon, and Baldwin Hills, have historically high rates of illiteracy, low socioeconomic status, and reoccurring threats of gang violence. ProLit's mission is not only to enrich the education of children and adults through reading comprehension and writing, but also to provide mentorship, establishing meaningful ties with the families in our surrounding communities. Lastly, with over 120 student volunteers, ProLit aims to provide UCLA students with a deeper awareness and understanding of the social problems of our times. ProLit reaches out 6 days a week to 8 different sites. Feel free to bookmark our site to remain up-to-date with current events. Also, check out our website and like us on Facebook!
