Program Overview

Since 1987, the Literacy Council has been here to help adults learn to read, write, and/or improve their English to assist them in achieving better literacy to improve their home, work, and community life.

Today the Literacy Council is needed more than ever. Our dedicated volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adults who come to us for literacy help. These adults come from all economic levels and demographics. Some students were not successful in high school and need help with pre-GED preparation. Some students are immigrants who want to speak English in order to communicate with their employers, their children's schoolteachers, their doctors and nurses, store clerks, and landlords.

Mission Statement

The Literacy Council vision is to assist adults in achieving better literacy to improve home, work, and community life. Our mission can be summed up very simply as: Better Literacy. Better Life.

We are under the auspices of the Family Resource Center (FRC) of Sheboygan County. The FRC mission is to impact family well-being, school readiness, and literacy skills.

Hours of operation: Monday through Friday

Cost info: One-on-one tutoring services are provided at no cost to adult students. Students are asked to pay for their textbook/workbook if financially able. Book Scholarships are given to those unable to pay for their books. Volunteers are trained for free to become Literacy Council one-on-one tutors. Ongoing support of tutors is also free.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Please see our Literacy Council video created in 2014. One student had this to say: "I just want to say tutors are like angels for me because they just want to help people like me....and that's priceless."

This past year, students have:

Improved functional literacy to increase participation in: child's school life, family health care needs, and community settings.

Achieved a driver's license

Moved from part-time to full-time employment

Improved grammar and spelling to better their job performance

Passed the U.S. Citizenship test and become a naturalized citizen
