Join ILA to help your students—and to help us end illiteracy!

Literacy is essential: It creates more dynamic societies, prosperous economies, and meaningful lives. In short, literacy gives the whole world the best chance for a successful future.

ILA is dedicated to ending illiteracy for the nearly 800 million people in the world who can't read or write, and ILA is committed to providing educators like you with the resources and support you need for your students' success—including valuable ideas, inspiration, and connection to a like-minded community of literacy leaders.
