One of the Library programs that the Foundation has been focusing on is Project L.E.A.D. (Literacy for Every Adult in Dade). Since 1985, Project L.E.A.D. has offered one-on-one confidential tutoring in basic literacy to thousands of adults in Miami-Dade County. To see the latest literacy statistics for Miami-Dade County: http://nces.ed.gov/naal/estimates/StateEstimates.aspx
Did you know that close to 52% of adults in Miami-Dade County are functionally illiterate?
