About

Did you know? In Lake County there are over 28,000 adults who have less than a 9 th grade education. (Source: American Community Survey)

Contact us to learn about how you can volunteer to help these adults get the Reading, Writing, Math, and English language skills they need. We provide training, materials, and support.

We rely on volunteer to help adult learners throughout Lake County achieve many goals: To build the skills they need to pursue a GED, to improve their work opportunities or become more effective in their current jobs, to learn everyday English to go shopping, communicate with employers, etc., to better support their children's education, or to find personal fulfillment and satisfaction.

Call or email for more information: americorpsvolunteer@waukeganpl.info or 847-775-2585.
