Literacy improves lives.
Our conviction that literacy improves lives is why Latinas for Latino Lit (L4LL) developed the L4LL Latino children’s summer reading program. Piloting successfully in 2013 to great national recognition, this is the first, nationwide, online summer reading program specifically for Hispanic students and families. The 2015 program continues reaching and engaging powerful gatekeepers and education stakeholders who are the key to developing and maintaining children’s literacy skills such as parents, educators, librarians, and community groups.
L4LL is a woman- and minority-owned education and literacy organization run by co-founders Viviana Hurtado, Ph.D. and Monica Olivera. Considered Latina influencers with a combined three decades in the education, Hispanic, and media spaces, our mission to raise literacy rates through pedagogically sound, culturally relevant content, and technology is rooted in our belief that all educational and professional achievement, as well as economic empowerment rests on the mastery of basic reading skills.
