Not only does Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara serve adult students, but we also offer several youth tutoring programs as well. We believe that illiteracy is one of the greatest threat to our children’s future. Education, and especially literacy, is the cornerstone of success in our society, however one of out every three Buffalonians – or nearly 90,000 residents – are considered functionally illiterate. Our programs and services address the literacy needs of the families in our community, not just adults.
