Mission Statement

Literacy DuPage equips a big-hearted army of tutors to sit side-by-side with adults who cannot understand, speak, read, or write English. Imagine! We give these volunteers the materials, techniques, and confidence they need to help adults bust through language barriers and experience a whole new world of communication and connection--right here in DuPage County. Together, we help adults achieve their goals through free, accessible and customized tutoring in English to empower families and communities through literacy.

Description

Literacy DuPage is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, community-based organization that provides accessible and customized tutoring in English to adult learners in DuPage County. Since 1972, we have been able to provide this service for free to over 10,000 adult learners throughout 30 different communities in DuPage County through the generosity and dedication of our volunteer tutors.

Our tutors come from a wide range of backgrounds, as no prior teaching experience or foreign language background is necessary to become a tutor. We train and guide our tutors throughout the tutoring process. Materials and techniques are provided to allow the tutor to guide the learner toward the achievement of personal goals. Tutors incorporate everyday materials such as a newspaper, map, or job application into their lessons. Tutoring occurs in one-on-one or small group settings at a mutually convenient time and location for both tutors and students.

If you wish to help literally change the lives of adult learners and impact future generations as a volunteer tutor, please visit our website at http://www.literacydupage.org or call us at 630.942.5210. We look forward to hearing from you!
