WELCOME TO BRADFORD-WYOMING COUNTY LITERACY PROGRAM

HISTORY

The Bradford-Wyoming Co. Literacy Program was founded in 1980 when six Friends of the Bradford Co. Library became the Literacy Program’s first volunteer tutors. These first volunteer tutors, under the direction of Fanna Proper and Joyce Strope Burgart, provided the enthusiasm and impetus to begin the Literacy Program. We continue to use best practices in the field of Literacy instruction and non-profit management today. We aspire to bring the highest caliber of Literacy services to the residents of Bradford and Wyoming Counties.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Bradford-Wyoming Co. Literacy Program is to provide free and confidential instruction for adults and teenagers in reading, writing, math, and English language skills so that they may reach their fullest potential in life and participate productively in their community.

VISION STATEMENT

We envision Bradford and Wyoming Counties as places where all adult residents have the Literacy skills they need to achieve their own dreams and the ability to enhance the quality of their lives in order to become better family members, employees , and community members.

Headquartered at 200 Main St. Suite 5 Towanda PA 18848, the Bradford-Wyoming County Literacy Program trains volunteer tutors and provides free and confidential “one to one” tutoring for adults and teenagers who lack basic reading skills or who want to learn English as a Second Language. An accredited ProLiteracy affiliate, the Bradford-Wyoming Co. Literacy Program began in 1980 as a special project of the Friends of the Bradford Co. Library. The Literacy Program is a member agency of the United Way of Bradford County.
