The mission of the Literary Committee of the Camden County Workforce Development Board is to promote the awareness and communicate the impact of literacy, enhance coordination among residents, employers and service providers, advocate for lifelong learning with the goal of leading Camden County residents to become economically self-sufficient individuals, responsible family members and contributing members of the community.
Boosting adult literacy levels is a critical task in developing a quality workforce. While having some of the most well-educated citizens in the country, New Jersey still faces significant basic literacy issues with a large influx of non-English speaking immigrants and lower literacy levels among some of its most disadvantaged citizens.
