This organization takes the approach of changing the playing field where, if you get people the chance of education, they won't need entitlements and services which cost them, their families and the community in the long run. Kids, adults and all between benefit. This is a great organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Imagination Library, GED training

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find new avenues to embrace the community

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with very dedicated people

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated and committed

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the landscape and economic development of not only the county but the region.

Ways to make it better...

The organization had better financial depth and we could focus more on programs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finding those who would benefit from education as it is a subject that people hide from friends and family; not unlike those who have found clever ways to hide forms of dementia

One thing I'd also say is that...

It is a great organization

Our community enjoys the benefits associated with its natural beauty and history: the site of the first major gold rush, in the Appalachian mountains, and a short drive to Atlanta. We have a variety of cultures here, based on tradition and on newer folks moving in. To sustain the values we believe in, everyone must be empowered, and literacy is key to that effort. The Lumpkin County Literacy Coalition works to increase literacy at all age levels, but it's our programs with our youth that have the most power because they help "inoculate" the next generation against the persistent poverty that 50% of our school-aged children live in. Our youth programs include the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and a Dictionary/Thesaurus program for 3rd/8th graders.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the variety of folks who are involved in service and who benefit from the programs, both directly and indirectly. Literacy has become recognized for its value to the community: economically, socially, and personally.

With a handful of people that organization helps prisoners gain their GEDs, supports english as a second language and has impacted over 70% of the county giving books monthly to young children at no cost to the families; in just three years. What can happen in the next 3 years should be quite exciting!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in growth of excitement with the community and with additional people wanting to know more about the 6 programs LCLC offers

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve some aspects of the coordination of the committees and help the treasurer improve the quality of reporting.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

attitude! there is true excitement

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful and friendsl

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the paradigm as we would have smaller community teams working neighborhoods versus large hub-and-spoke management. LCLC challenge is to find those who can't read as, they hide.

Ways to make it better...

If committee work was a little more committee driven versus board driven

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

difficult financial times when supporters have little in their pot to part with

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization has come a long way in a short time.

Our volunteers, including Board members and outstanding program committee members such as the Spelling BEE Planning Group, help put literacy in the forefront of this community. Helping youth get the GED diploma, giving dictionaries to third graders, and mailing age-appropriate books from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to pre-schoolers every month without cost to the family would never happen without our excellent large cadre of volunteers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reducing the impact of illiteracy on the economic development of this community by helping young people secure the GED diploma.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to do as I do.

More feedback...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start a massive community education program aimed at making youth successful as they begin their lives as responsible adults.

expressing our accomplishments to the community.
