Mission Statement

Literacy Network teaches reading, writing, communication and computer skills to Dane County adults so they can achieve financial security, well-being and deeper engagement with their families and the community.

Description

Literacy Network was founded in 1974 and serves approximately 1,000 low-income adults each year in Dane County, Wisconsin. With a staff of 28 and approximately 900 annual volunteers, we help adults achieve their goals through personalized education services and support.

The people we work with improve their skills in English language communications, reading comprehension, and use of information technology. As a result, they advance their careers, help their kids succeed in school, achieve their U.S. citizenship, understand health information, or obtain their high school diploma or other degrees.

We offer small classes and individual tutoring to personalize the learning experience for everyone we serve. We build strategic partnerships with schools, businesses, libraries and community organizations to serve local needs in 34 locations throughout our community.

Each semester over 200 volunteer tutors meet every week, one-on-one, with adults needing their help with reading, writing, speaking English, basic computer skills, or GED prep. Training and lesson plans are provided!
