Today on the show, I am chatting with another old college buddy of mine, Mr. Todd Evans. He is the Director of Professional Development with ProLiteracy based out of Syracuse NY.
Todd and I talk about our college days at Memphis State and how they prepared us for who we are today, his desire to educate the voting population, and how we as a community, can help adults learn to read. And for me, Adult Literacy is a very personal topic.
There is an estimated 36 million adults in the U.S.—and almost 800 million worldwide—struggle with basic reading, writing and math skills. These individuals struggle daily to read a menu, fill out a job application, or even read a bedtime story to their children. ProLiteracy removes the hurdles that stand in the way of their goals.
ProLiteracy is the largest adult literacy and basic education membership organization in the nation, they believe that a safer, stronger, and more sustainable society starts with an educated adult population.
For more than 60 years, ProLiteracy has been working across the globe to change lives and communities through the power of literacy.
Friends I really hope you enjoyed today’s conversation with Mr. Todd Evans. We both really appreciate you taking the time out today to listen in on our conversation.
