Mission: The mission of Literacy Works 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. Our vision is that one day, all people will be able to realize their full potential through the ability to read.
Annual Budget: $305,000
Key Campaigns: In Chicago, more than half a million adults cannot read and write well enough to support their goals related to employment, community involvement, and supporting their children’s education. Literacy Works builds the quality and capacity of community-based literacy programs all over the city, helping to ensure that adults have access to the educational programs they need. Get involved! If you would like to volunteer to tutor an adult in reading, writing, math, or English as a second language, contact Literacy Works. We’ll help place you at an organization that meets your needs and interests.
Upcoming Events: Literacy Works is turning 20 next year! We’re celebrating with a birthday bash at Lagunitas Brewing Co.’s Chicago Tap Room on February 3. Save the date! Visit our website, www.litworks.org, in the coming months for details.
