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.

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.
