Indy Reads has been awarded a $40,000 grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a Central Indiana Community Foundation affiliate. The award will be used to support the Community Classrooms program.
Adult learners in the program are offered free literacy, ELL, and certifications classes. Each school year, adults have the opportunity to improve their reading, comprehension, and career readiness skills. Skill building makes educational and career attainment possible and increases better outcomes for program participants.
“We’re thankful to be a recipient of the grant and to continue to fight for literacy in Central Indiana through our Community Classrooms program,” says Ryan King, Indy Reads CEO. “Every dollar helps us to make a difference in the lives of our students. Literacy is a resource that opens many doors and gifts like these help widen the path for even more students and their families.”
