Better literacy. Better life.
WHAT WE DO
The Literacy Council helps adults who want to read, write, and speak English better so they can achieve their goals for work, education, family life, and community involvement.
We train caring, patient community volunteers to provide free one-on-one tutoring for motivated adult learners across Sheboygan County.
The Literacy Council collaborates with other community organizations to provide literacy services in Sheboygan County. When Sheboygan County adults have the literacy skills they need, our entire community benefits with a more qualified workforce, a higher standard of living, more involved citizens, improved health care outcomes, and parents who are able to support their child’s schooling.
The Literacy Council is a United Way affiliated agency and a member of Wisconsin Literacy and ProLiteracy.
