What is XPRIZE?

The Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE presented by Dollar General Literacy Foundation is distributing free mobile learning applications able to move low-literate adults to basic literacy in just one year.

The solutions will overcome key barriers by improving access, increasing retention, and scaling to meet demand - anytime, anywhere - empowering the nearly 1 in 6 low-literate adults living in the U.S. with the skills they need to improve their lives.

Volunteers will help distribute these mobile literacy learning applications in Philadelphia.
