Our Mission


21 Century Literacy is an educational non-profit 401(c)(3) located in Austin, Texas.


Our primary mission is to research the interdisciplinary concept of literacy and the best practices in literacy education.  We want to foster and promote literacy education. 

We use our research to create and expand this website, which is a free, on-line textbook with teacher's resources.  As a provider of a free web textbook, we can help save students, schools, and tax-payers millions of dollars each year. 

As part of this mission, we will offer consulting services.  We can help educators create lesson plans and teaching activities based on this web textbook, and other resources, which can meet the specific curriculum objectives of any school.


We gladly accept donations, which are tax deductible.
