BENEFITING: LITERACY WORKS

THE STORY:

Literacy Works' mission is to fulfill the promise of a basic human right: to read, write, and interpret the world. To accomplish its mission, Literacy Works promotes adult literacy and family literacy in Chicago through training to volunteer tutors, unique workshops for adult literacy students, and an array of services that strengthen community-based adult and family literacy programs. 

In Chicago, half a million adults cannot read, write, or speak English well enough to meet their own goals for education, employment, and enrichment for themselves and their families.

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 50 adult literacy and family literacy programs throughout the Chicago area. 

Each year, Literacy Works:

  • trains over 800 community volunteers and educators who teach thousands of teen and adult learners enrolled in Chicago-area literacy programs;
  • provides training and networking opportunities to community-based adult literacy, family literacy, and workforce development programs;
  • instructs over 70 adult learners in three specialized areas: writing skills, employment literacy, and family literacy.

About Living Philanthropic:
My mission is to give to charity every day for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don't have to be rich in dollars to make a difference, you only need to be rich in spirit. I may not always be able to give a lot, but I will Give Everyday.
