The Flint & Genesee Literacy Network and its Partners are developing a results-focused action and learning coalition dedicated to collective impact.

Together, FGLN and its Partners are focusing on building the strengths of community organizations, as well as ensuring that individuals in need of improved literacy skills, have access to sufficient and appropriate information and resources. The coalition is designed to serve Flint and Genesee County’s most vulnerable learners, across their lifespan. This development of strategic and accountable partnerships is critical to achieving Collective Impact.
