About Literacy DuPage

Location:

2100 Manchester Road, Building B, Suite 904, Wheaton, IL 60187, US

Mission Statement

Literacy DuPage’s mission is to help adults achieve their life skills goals through accessible and customized tutoring in English.

Description

Literacy DuPage is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been committed to offering English language instruction to DuPage County adults since 1972. We have been able to provide this service to over 13,000 adult learners throughout 30 communities in the county at no cost to students or tutors.

We equip our big-hearted army of tutors to work one-to-one with adults who have little to no proficiency in comprehending, speaking, reading, or writing English. We train our volunteers and provide the materials, techniques, and confidence needed to help their learners break through language barriers and experience safer, more productive lives.

Our tutors come from a wide range of backgrounds. No prior teaching or foreign language experience is necessary. Tutors incorporate everyday materials, such as a newspaper, map, or job application, into their lessons. Tutoring occurs in a one-to-one setting at a convenient time and public location for the tutor-student pair, most commonly at libraries.

If you wish to help literally change the lives of low-literacy adult learners and impact future generations as a volunteer tutor, please visit our website at www.literacydupage.org or call us at 331-472-7160 for more information. We look forward to your participation!
