BONITA SPRINGS, FL, Atilus, southwest Florida’s leading web development and design firm is proud to announce the launch of www.LiteracyGulfCoast.org.
Jim Kahl, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Literacy Council Gulf Coast is very pleased with the results. “The new website has exceeded our expectations. It will be an excellent tool to bring awareness of our multiple programs and their impact on the lives of students. We are proud of our work through the dedication of over 700 volunteers to help students of all ages to become more productive and achieve their goals.”
Literacy Volunteers of Lee County and the Literacy Council of Bonita Springs merged on July 1, 2011 to form Literacy Council Gulf Coast, the largest literacy advocacy organization in the United States. Last year, over 700 volunteer tutors taught English, conversation skills, reading, computer enrichment, and U.S. citizenship exam preparation to over 3,100 students.
Susan Acuna, President and CEO of Literacy Council Gulf Coast (LCGC), explained “we have been working with the team at Atilus for several months to design a website that gets noticed. We are thrilled to launch our brand new site: www.LiteracyGulfCoast.org. It is easy to navigate, interesting, and informative, with plenty of literacy resources available for our community. This site is fully functional and will make it easier for people to support us financially and as tutors.”
Over 900 moms and their preschool children studied English together to prepare their children to start school ready to learn. We are proud of our work through the dedication of over volunteers to help members of the community become more productive and to achieve their goals.
Harry Casimir, cofounder of Atilus and a member of the board for LCGC touted the benefits of the website. “Our firm has supported adult literacy in the community for several years. We are convinced this powerful website will serve as the primary advocacy tool for the agency. LCGC’s mission to ‘assist adults and children to acquire the literacy skills necessary to improve their quality of life’ is at the heart of this custom website. I believe this will be an example for other affiliate literacy groups who want to make a big impact in adult and child literacy.”
