Mission Statement

Literacy Works’ mission is to strengthen adult literacy, parent education, and workforce development programs by developing and providing innovative training and knowledge-sharing opportunities for professionals and volunteers. Literacy Works’ vision is that one day, all people will be able to realize their full potential through the ability to read, write, and interpret the world. This ideal inspires our team and drives our work.

Description

Organized in 1995 by four community-based agencies struggling with the challenges of volunteer-driven literacy programs, Literacy Works was awarded 501(c)(3) status in 2001. Today, Literacy Works has a membership of more than 50 adult literacy and parent education programs throughout the Chicago area. Additionally, we partner with dozens of workforce development programs to help them in their work with clients who have low literacy.
