About Learn to Read St. Lucie County

Learn to Read St. Lucie County was created in 1981, when Dorothy Brennan read a newspaper story about a child who nearly died of an overdose because his mother couldn’t read the instructions on a medication bottle. Brennan couldn’t bear the thought of this tragedy happening to one more family, so the Fort Pierce woman created Learn to Read St. Lucie County, a nonprofit organization which would provide free literacy services. Nearly thirty years and thousands of students later, Learn to Read St. Lucie County honored Brennan by dedicating its new facility as the Dorothy Brennan Learning Center.

Since its inception, Learn to Read St. Lucie has assisted thousands of individuals in St. Lucie County through Literacy Services offered by volunteer tutors who are trained and certified in the Laubach method, a four-level, time-tested curriculum which has assisted millions of adults in gaining independence through reading, even those with little or no preliminary skills. Tutors work one-to-one or with small groups of students depending upon the students’ needs. In addition to literacy assistance, Learn to Read St. Lucie County also provides English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) tutoring and classes, United States Citizenship training and assistance, English Conversation classes, and job and career preparation.

To volunteer, or to learn more about the organization, call Learn to Read St. Lucie County at (772) 464-2747 today.
