Over the last three years, with the help of AmeriCorps VISTA staff, Project Read has expanded services to include small group instruction and post-graduation services to help students transition to higher education and improved employment. Project Read is in its last year of eligibility for the AmeriCorps VISTA program, the Friends of Project Read program is intended to independently fund those two positions so that students can continue to be empowered and enabled to contribute more to Utah County. We need the citizens and businesses of Utah County to support Project Read’s efforts to improve lives through literacy. Together, we can have a powerful impact on more of the 28,000 local individuals with low literacy skills. Please become a Friend of Project Read today!
