Literacy Forsyth was founded as a resource to assist adults in Forsyth County with low literacy.  We earned our status as a Certified Literate Community Program by providing programs for GED instruction along with ESL and Citizenship classes.  In 2017 our services expanded to serve Early Childhood Literacy needs in Forsyth County and to address Two Gen low literacy impacting families.
