A brand-new National Literacy Directory!

The National Literacy Directory (NLD) has a brand-new look! Since 2010, the NLD has helped connect more than 50,000 potential students and volunteers to literacy services, community education programs, and testing centers. To better serve its users, the directory’s website has been updated to make the website more user-friendly and to help program managers and people looking for learning and volunteer opportunities find the information they need.

In addition to a redesigned look, here are some features of the new site:

  • The new modern design of the directory is more mobile friendly, designed to make everything easier to navigate when accessing the website on the go. 
  • For website viewers that would prefer to be directly referred to a program rather than searching the directory, the NLD hotline phone number is more visible than ever: highlighted in bright orange on the top of the directory’s main page. 
  • Website viewers can now more easily search for specific education services, volunteer opportunities, and GED and HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) testing center locations. 
  • The individual program listings provide more concise and relevant information. 
  • The program manager application has been shortened and is now easier to fill out!
  • The blog categories have been updated to include a “News” section and an “Events” section, making it easier to share recent news articles and events (such as webinars and conferences) with the NLD audience.
