Literacy Works serves a membership of over 50 independent literacy programs throughout Chicago. These diverse programs offer instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE), GED and/or Family Literacy/Parent Education (Fam/Parent). Several offer Workforce Development (WFD) services, Early Childhood Education (ECE) or First Language Literacy (FLL).
Some organizations have multiple sites offering different services at each site. Please be sure to contact the agency for more details about a specific location. Most organizations — but not all — use volunteers.
