At ILA, literacy is our passion. It's our mission to make literacy accessible to all. This mission motivates us and connects us with like-minded practitioners and advocates—our fellow literacy champions!

Champions believe in the power of literacy. Whether directly educating students, impacting public policy about literacy, or benefiting from literacy education themselves, champions have experienced the transformative power of literacy and want to use it to change the world. And that's where ILA comes in—we provide the resources, support, and platform to help literacy champions enhance the lives of others.
