Apter & O’Connor is excited about our new partnership with Literacy Powerline. The mission of Literacy Powerline is to increase literacy levels through effective and sustainable community collaboration and engagement. Literacy Powerline works with educators, business and labor leaders, philanthropic organizations, civic and faith-based groups, policymakers, literacy providers and students to demonstrate that everyone thrives when a community is committed to 100% literacy.
Their founder, Margaret Doughty says it best: “Community literacy has a short history for a revolutionary idea. Literacy Powerline was one of the first to recognize the power of linking stakeholders, neighborhoods and services together to increase literacy levels.” Along with LiteracyPowerline Network Partner Kim Scott, Apter & O’Connor will offer strategic planning, needs assessment and evaluation expertise to coalitions across the country to develop effective and highly accountable literacy initiatives within their own communities.
