Humanities-Based Literacy Programs
The Vermont Humanities Council has a deep and longstanding commitment to literacy. This commitment is based in three principal beliefs:
- The humanities and the world of ideas belong to everyone;
- The ability to read and penchant for reading are critical to one’s economic, social, and personal satisfaction; and
- Reading is critical to participating meaningfully in public affairs. At the heart of all VHC’s literacy programs is reading and discussion.
Our humanities-based literacy programs are designed for specific underserved and at-risk audiences.
