About First Literacy
Because literacy, functional English skills, and high school credentials are essential in our society, for 25 years First Literacy has provided life-changing educational opportunities to adults in Greater Boston who need to improve their literacy skills. Through granting funds and providing capacity-building support to adult basic education programs, offering professional development to staff and teachers in the field, and awarding scholarships to individuals to continue their education, we have helped nearly 45,000 low-income adult learners and their families on a path to a better life. We take care of their first steps.
