About Lawyers for Literacy

Lawyers For Literacy is a non-profit organization of volunteer attorneys and judges with one goal in mind: helping at-risk third grade students pass the FSA (Florida Standards Assessments) by...

  • Providing books to them and their families.
  • Tutoring one-on-one in reading and reading comprehension.
  • Tutoring one-on-one in preparation for the March third grade FSA.

Mission:
With the assistance of legal and other professionals in our community, we strive to help struggling readers improve their skills to pass the FCAT and build a foundation for success.

For 11 weeks, January through March, tutors each meet with their 3rd grade student, on a weekly basis, to work on and improve reading skills in preparation for the April Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) language arts / reading exam which is critical for student promotion to 4th grade.
