Changing Lives
Through literacy

Thanks for joining us to celebrate our landmark anniversary with a Literacy Works Week of Giving! During this week we look forward to honoring our 25 years of service, recognizing the inspirational educators and learners in our community, and interacting with our valuable donors (that's you!)

 

Your generous support provides significant funding that allows Literacy Works to keep working toward our vision that one day all people will be able to read, write, and interpret the world. Thank you for your generosity!

This week we have set a goal to raise $10,000 to train 250 new volunteer tutors in Chicago. Once trained, tutors are matched with adult learners in our community to help them reach their language, learning, and life goals.

 

For every $250 raised another book is added to the stack and new tutors get trained. Help us reach our goal so adult learners across Chicago can reach theirs!

Literacy Works gleans its inspiration from the volunteer tutors and adult learners our member agencies support. We strive to strengthen programs to best serve the needs of tutor/learner pairs and enjoy honoring the journey to achieving lifelong goals. This year we are proud to acknowledge Peter Barker and Jimmy Cao from our member agency Pui Tak Center!
