Our mission is to change the make-up of the world by impacting the lives of children of all ages by setting up strong literacy programs with a detailed curriculum that will cater to children from ages 5-18. The Literacy for Youth Foundation incorporates after school and summer programs that are available to children in all social economic classes. These programs will teach the importance and essentials skills in the area of economics, mathematics, financial literacy, social studies, social skills, science, health and reading, in a safe and nurturing environment, using fun interactive methods.

“Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.”
— Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of The Children's Defense Fund




The Literacy for Youth Foundation (501c3) has been approved by the USDA and Bright from the Start to become a sponsor for the Summer Food Service Program. The SFSP is a Federal funded program that reimburses non-profit organizations for healthy meals and snacks served to children in low income areas during periods when schools are closed for vacation. Over 60% of Georgia’s school aged children are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Through the SFSP, these children can receive free meals during the summer when they may not otherwise have access to well- balanced meals. When school is out, too many families across the state worry about how their children will receive nutritious meals on a daily basis. The SFSP helps fill that gap and contributes to the overall health and well being of our children.
