13th Annual Literacy Empowerment Campaign

“Engineering Our Next Steps”

Please help us Celebrate YCLC Students’ Successes and Kick Off the 13th Annual Literacy Empowerment Campaign!

Taking our cue from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization(WHO), PA Department of Health, and other authorities, we have decided to postpone the March 19th Celebrate Success – Literacy Empowerment Campaign Kick-off event at Logos Academy.

Until we can celebrate in-person, we are helping John Klinedinst kickoff this year’s Literacy Empowerment Campaign online. More details to come!

We are looking forward to celebration with our students, volunteers and donors, but recognize the importance of the health, safety and overall well-being of our community. We ask for your patience as we work to reschedule “Celebrate Success” when we will congratulate the York County Literacy Council’s recent GED/HiSET Graduates and New American Citizens!
