Project Literacy's mission is to battle the problem of illiteracy in Los Angeles communities with limited financial and social service resources.
Project Literacy is a non-profit community service organization dedicated to improving literacy rates in the Los Angeles region through one-on-one tutoring. The five communities Prolit serves: Watts, Mar Vista, Vernon,Venice and Baldwin Hills, have historically high rates of illiteracy, low socioeconomic status,and reoccurring threats of gang violence. Prolit's mission is not only to enrich the education of children and adults through reading comprehension and writing, but also to provide mentorship, establishing meaningful ties with the families in our surrounding communities. Lastly, with over 150 student volunteers, Prolit aims to provide UCLA students with a deeper awareness and understanding of the social problems of our times.
