Get Involved

Adult Literacy

We offer resources and guidance to churches interested in starting adult literacy programs. Contact lester@literacyconnexus.org for information on using the Bible to teach adults to read.

Advocacy

Literacy Connexus advocates for persons with literacy needs, sometimes through the legislative process and sometimes by raising awareness in churches and communities.

Book Banks

We have five book banks around the state of Texas so far, and would love to see many more. A book bank is a place--usually a formerly unused room of a church--where new and used books are donated, sorted by volunteers, and distributed in a variety of ways to families in need.

Books for the Border and Beyond

This is our signature project and a means of providing beginning home libraries to families that lack reading materials at home. We guide, recruit, and work with churches to build bookcases and collect books to disperse through family reading fairs in communities throughout Texas and along the border with Mexico.

Ready for School

Ready for School! is a 20-week curriculum for working with young refugee families. It was created by Karen Morrow, fkmorrow@yahoo.com, Caroline Bell, caroline@literacyconnexus.org, and Jana Marbut-Ray.

TEX (Teaching English with Excellence)

TEX prepares volunteers to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in a faith-based setting. The program was developed by the late Robin Feistel to give volunteer teachers of adult students the skills, resources, and versatility to teach and lead in any church-based ESL program.
