Teams - Adult Literacy XPRIZE - Registered

MEET the teams

To eliminate the barriers to literacy learning for the over 36 million low literate adults living in the U.S., and to disrupt the cycle of isolation, lack of opportunity and poverty for these individuals and their families, we need a radical new approach to how we deliver adult literacy learning.  The Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE presented by Dollar General Literacy Foundation will help to unlock the doors of opportunity and offer low literate adults the skills they need to improve their lives. We look forward to their groundbreaking solutions our registered teams will develop and the journey ahead.
