Memorandum on the Federal Employee Literacy Training Program
Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
Subject: Federal Employee Literacy Training Program
am pleased to announce that our Federal Employee Literacy Training Program
(FELT), which I established as a part of the Adult Literacy Initiative on
I am asking each Executive department and agency, including regional and field offices, to cooperate with existing adult literacy programs by encouraging Federal employees to volunteer to serve in these programs. Volunteer services may range from tutoring to support activities such as providing clerical assistance or transportation. Participation by individual employees in this program is entirely voluntary, but I urge you to use appropriate volunteer recognition programs in your agencies to recognize outstanding literacy volunteers.
Please extend my personal thanks to those Federal employees who are already participating in FELT. I understand many of them find it one of the most rewarding things they have ever done.
