Mission Statement

"Bringing about a just and vibrant West Michigan through the power of literacy."


The Literacy Center of West Michigan's Adult Tutoring Program offers a valuable service to community members wishing to improve their reading and language skills. We pair volunteer tutors with adult learners in Kent County, and support those pairs as they meet one time per week (for two hours) at a location and time of their choice.

Would you recommend Literacy Center of West Michigan?

I’ve been working with the Literacy Center for over 2 years. I’ve found them to be very helpful and supportive in my goals to help an English Language Learner with speaking, reading, and learning about our American customs, even obtaining citizenship! As a bonus, I’ve been able to learn about others cultures and customs. It has been a great experience!
