About The Newark Literacy Campaign, Inc. founded in 1984, leads
literacy programs for adults, children and families and is the coordinating
agency for literacy services in the City of Newark. The mission of the NLC is to
empower anyone who seeks to overcome low literacy by providing free instruction
in reading and to support their learning with meaningful literacy services.
The NLC Adult Literacy Program has served Newark and its surrounding communities for twenty-two years. Based at the main branch of The Newark Public Library, 5 Washington Street, Newark, the program empowers anyone who seeks to overcome low literacy by providing free instruction in reading. Highly qualified instructors lead classes, train volunteer tutors and provide guidance to learners.
NLC Programs for Children and Youth address the serious issue of the ability of Newark's schoolchildren to graduate from high school and prepare emotionally and academically for college by providing intensive tutoring in the early grades. Our holistic approach promotes a culture where academic success is valued, expected and supported.
The Prenatal Health Literacy Project is a collaboration with UMDNJ's Ob/Gyn Clinic. There, we help low literacy mothers-to-be to complete the often daunting paperwork involved in obtaining appropriate healthcare. Through health literacy classes, expectant mothers become more knowledgeable about the importance of prenatal healthcare and are more likely to keep their appointments at the clinic.
As the Coordinating Literacy Agency for the City of Newark, the NLC works with the Newark One-Stop Center, a facility of Newark's Workforce Investment Board, to conduct literacy assessments, refer clients to the appropriate agencies, and provide basic skills classes to Newark's One-Stop clients.
The Newark Literacy Campaign, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation.
