Without the New Mexico Coalition for Literacy (NMCL), my organization would oot be able to function. The funding NMCL provides through distribution is invaluable, but the information, resources, contacts, and support provide the nutritional sustenance that keeps my organization healthy and strong-NMCL is our political backbone.

I became envolved in the State's literacy issues in 2000. Without the New Mexico Coalition for Literacy's support and guidance this program (RWALP) would never have gotten started nor survived. They showed us how to acquire a dedicated and supportive board along with guidelines for appropriate committees. They also trained our board, tutors and staff. I remain dedicated to helping those adults who need support in bettering their lives by improving their education.

In the few short months that I have worked with NMCL I have become enthusiastic about the efforts of the organization. We really can help make the community brighter by helping guide individuals toward their own potential through reading literacy.

Literacy leads to personal growth, decrease poverty level, increased or enhanced employment, quality parental involvement as well as increased community safety.

The New Mexico Coalition for Literacy provides our program with training for the program's tutors. They also provide the program with funding.

As a new employee in the literacy world, the NM Coalition for Literacy has provided the best training and information to empower me. The sessions provided to partners was outstanding. I learned so much and was pleased with the experience based teaching methods used to describe how our clients would perceive learning a new skill. I would most definitely advise others in the adult learning service to become involved with NMCL.

I am the Program Coordinator for Literacy Link-Leamos in Silver City, New Mexico. As a coordinator, I have received guidance and help from NMCL. This organization provides us with expert trainings, leadership and support on all levels. I am proud to operate an organization under NMCL's umbrella. The staff is always helpful, educated and great as role models. The Board is phenomenal and I feel that they really have a solid group of professionals that know how to lead. Our program would be lost without NMCL!

I am a teacher and will always believe that the only way any one can be successful and independent will be by having the ability to read. NMCL is a very important part of our society in addition to schools. This organization helps provide the help that many people were not able to find or be successful while at school. I am very proud of the young ladies that run NMCL, they are very professional and conscientious about the need of literacy in the State of New Mexico. They take their job seriously and have compassion for the needs of our adults that were failed by the school systems, society and others.
