The Literacy for Adults Program
Designed for ELL (English Language Learners) pursuing basic literacy skills including computer usage, U.S. Citizenship, NEDP, GED, Employment and Higher Educational Opportunities
The Literacy Volunteers of Southern Connecticut strives to provide you and your family with all the educational skills and life tools that you need to achieve your goals – for U.S. citizenship, for your GED degree or NEDP and higher educational pursuits, and for employment opportunities so that you can adapt and merge more easily into American society. All of our LITERACY FOR ADULTS PROGRAMS are available to any adult (18 years and older) who resides in the Greater Milford, Stratford, West Haven Area, and are free of charge.
Our trained tutors will focus on building your reading, writing, math, and computer skills. Please review all of our programs carefully and then call the Center to set up an appointment. We will discuss your needs in person before placement in our program.
Please note: The ESOL Program, as well as the GED, NEDP and Basic Literacy Program offer both group tutoring (in a classroom) or one-on-one (individual) tutoring scheduled at the convenience of the tutor and you. You may meet at the Center or at another location that’s convenient to both. Please decide which arrangement is more comfortable for you. Your enrollment in any of our programs at the Center will remain confidential.
