Additional Announcements

dfoww, Incorporated’s special online reading and writing workshops curriculum is different from the 14 week Write-Right Literacy Program in which interested participants must meet certain requirements to register and be enrolled in the program. We believe that providing special workshops, free to everyone, provides supplementary academic support to low-income, minority individuals and communities worldwide who are on their path to literacy.

Registration is now open for the Write-Right Literacy Program (WRLP) Fall semester. The Fall semester begins on October 18, 2021. The deadline to register is Thursday October 14, 2021.

The WRLP is a 14-week adult literacy program that prepares adults to take the Reasoning Through Language Arts portion of the GED test. Anyone who is 18 years of age or older, a USA resident, and wanting to obtain their GED are welcome to apply for the Fall semester. Interested candidates should complete the WRLP application on our website under the Write-Right Literacy Program category. Our goal is to assist 300 participants each fiscal year through our charity programs.
