Literacy Council Gulf Coast was honored to be featured in “Bay Watch News,” a Bonita Bay news publication for members and owners within the Bonita Bay Community in Bonita Springs, Fla.

Literacy Council, the largest nonprofit literacy agency in the United States, is proudest of success stories like this one in the article:

Francisco Aguilar came to the Literacy Council in 2009. He was 17 years old and spoke no English. He was extremely motivated to learn the language; so on top of a full-time job, he attended classes, worked with a tutor and studied at home. In a short period of time, he was able to enroll at Estero High School. He recently graduated and now plans to attend Edison State College to study nursing.

Stories like these are phenomenal and demonstrate the success of the LCGC program in Southwest Florida. We’re always looking to show the impact that our program makes in the community. If you have a literacy success story of your own you would be willing to share, please contact [email protected] so that we can post it on our website!
