Who We Are

As part of the Norfolk Academy Center for Civic and Global Leadership, the Literacy Fellows Program engages high-achieving students to understand, communicate, and solve the national and global issues inextricably linked to literacy. Understanding that abilities with reading and writing are crucial for empowered and responsible citizens, the Literacy Fellows Program serves to advance literacy as a way to break cycles of poverty in Hampton Roads and beyond. Fellows work alongside Norfolk Academy faculty to grow in their own writing aptitude, while collaborating with outside organizations and communities to gain first-hand knowledge of the far-reaching implications of literacy.
