The Literacy Connection is thrilled to be the recipient of the Cummings Foundation’s generosity for the next 5 years as our organization expands. Because of this award, our plan is to grow our adult education network in Boston, offering essential referrals and placements for adults who are in the most need of flexible scheduled tutoring sessions, one on one educational and literacy needs, and citizenship preparation. By expanding our tutor base and online presence, we plan to be able to help many more students who are currently in danger of not being served.
