Welcome! The Literacy Council serves two audiences, adults and businesses, and offers classes, workshops, one-on-one tutoring and off-site training. When people come to us, they're committed to making a change - and ready to do the work. We have helped thousands of adults reach their goals. Our programs are proven effective and focus on four positive outcomes.
* Read and Write Proficiently
* Become a Productive Citizen
* Prepare for Work
* Achieve Success on the Job
