What Does Literacy Mean to You?

For Emmanuel, "literacy" at Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council means many things. At 21 years old, Emmanuel resettled in the United States after fleeing violence in his home country of the Congo. Emmanuel’s immediate goal upon coming to Pittsburgh was to attend college, but lacked his high school diploma. He learned about Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council and eagerly enrolled. Emmanuel excelled in each of his classes. “The love, commitment, and support of the whole staff supported me on my journey,” he explains. One of his favorite things about the organization? “The different people of various races and cultures, all in one class with a goal to succeed.” Emmanuel is a proud recipient of the Terri Gould Foundation Scholarship and attends the Community College of Allegheny County. His goal is to earn his associate’s degree and then transfer to a four-year university where he can eventually pursue a master’s degree in mechanical engineering.
