Our History



The Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans is an adult literacy intermediary founded in 2002 as the result of a comprehensive community planning process.  The Alliance is supported by Loyola University's Lindy Boggs National Center for Community Literacy, whose mission is to promote adult literacy as a vehicle for personal, economic and community empowerment.  We are a multi-stakeholder organization whose partners include business, government, education, service providers, faith leaders, advocates and adult learners.
