On Tuesday, June 14, 2011, Santa Fe Restaurant will be donating 20% of dinner proceeds YES! to assist in the ongoing effort to stamp out adult illiteracy in New Orleans.
YES!, is YMCA’s Educational Services, which is the adult literacy branch of the Greater New Orleans .
Statistics show that there are over 800,000 adults in the state of Louisiana in need of adult education services.
According to the Literacy Alliance of Greater New Orleans, if these adults were to complete a high school diploma or the equivalent, and be able to earn the compensorate salaries associated with this level of education, Louisiana would see an increase in personal income of over 5 billion dollars.
Adult illiteracy is everyone’s problem, and it affects our community on so many different levels. More than just the ability to read, the impact of low literacy is seen in everything from the need to help children with their homework, being able to understand the instructions on prescription bottles, voter turnout, and poor customer service experiences.
Please support efforts to better our community and to create a better new Orleans by having dinner with us on Tuesday June 14th
