Our Vision

RAALP envisions a community where all adults have the literacy skills that enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Our Mission

RAALP’s mission is to help community members transform their lives through enhanced literacy.

Why We’re Here:

  • 25% of Rio Arriba County residents lack basic literacy skills
  • 34% speak only limited English

Our programs:

RAALP provides free, one-to-one tutoring for adults reading at or below 6th grade level and English-as-a-Second-Language learners.

Did You Know?

According to the New Mexico Coalition for Literacy, 46% of adult New Mexicans read below the 6th grade level.
Just imagine if you couldn’t…

  • Complete a job application
  • Read medicine labels
  • Use a map
  • Understand road signs
  • Order from a printed menu
  • Register to vote
  • Read stories to your children

For adults who struggle with reading or writing, these everyday tasks are difficult, or perhaps impossible.
