Literacy is Fun Too, (L.I.F.T.) provides extraordinary literary opportunities designed to reengage learning and inspire Georgia’s underserved youth.
Our schools are failing our kids. There is a systemic problem throughout the school system where kids are taught to pass the test. Shouldn’t the goal be for our kids to develop a love for learning—to find their passion and discover how they can contribute to our society? The school system, by no fault of our educators, continues to approach this problem of failing schools the same way every year and expect different results. Our program re-engages kids and shows them how their creative gifts can be used in the real world. The vehicle we use to accomplish this is creative writing.
Our members and community share what literacy means.
