This is a special year for Literacy Pittsburgh! We’re excited to celebrate 40 years of better lives through learning. Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting activities and reflecting on the people and partners who make Literacy Pittsburgh special.

We have fun birthday surprises planned for One Big Table: An International Tasting on March 21. Watch our newsletter, website, and social media for stories about the volunteers, students, and staff members who made us who we are today. We’ll have some custom birthday merchandise available this spring. Save the date for an outdoor birthday party on Sunday, August 28, the date of our founding.

Thank you for making the last 40 years so special. We look forward to celebrating with you throughout 2022!
