Read for Life is an adult literacy program established in 1987 by the Findlay Service League to provide reading instruction for adult who are unable to read or have limited reading ability.

Read for Life will also provide tutors to those incarcerated in the Hancock County Jail, Bridges Out of Poverty, Summer Smart Lunch Series, University of Findlay Service Learning, Raise the Bar, City Mission, Hope House, and Help Me Grow.

Each student is given books and materials to work in the area matched to his/her own needs and abilities. Tutors can help students with reading, math, writing, social studies, English as a second language, GED, and citizenship.

Read for Life is a member of the Ohio Literacy Network, ProLiteracy America, and the Literacy Coalition of Hancock County.
