Over 23,000 adults in Muskegon County – and about 30% of unskilled industrial workers nationwide – are functionally illiterate.

 

Strong businesses need strong communities – Read Muskegon builds residents’ capacity to fully
participate in their community, creating more equitable professional and economic opportunities
