Program Overview

Adult Basic Literacy helps adult learners to improve basic reading, writing, math, and critical thinking skills that support educational, career and personal goals. Basic literacy and GED prep classes are available in English and Spanish.

English Language Acquisition for Adults supports immigrants and refugees in learning English so they can develop the skills and confidence to fully participate in, and contribute to, our community.

Most classes are currently offered via Zoom with additional tutoring provided between classes when available.

Hours of operation: 9-5 M-F

Cost info: All classes and tutoring are free to our students.

"I am so thrilled that I finally convinced myself to sign up as a volunteer with Literacy Connects. I had no idea that in addition to learning how to tutor English, I would also be gaining so many incredible insights into my community and making new friends. I also feel as if I am doing something positive. Thank you for all you do!" --English Language Acquisition for Adults volunteer
