Learners Improve Their Lives Through Literacy

LFL05202014-9Literacy for Life helps over 800 adults a year. If you want to improve your literacy, or know someone who does, contact us for more information.

New learners need to complete the following steps:

  1. Make an appointment with the Assessment Specialist. The Specialist will:
    • ask you about your goals.
    • give you a pre-assessment to better understand your needs.
    • explain the program to you.
    • help you decide if Literacy for Life is right for you.
  2. Use our computer lab and join a conversation group or instructional class while you wait for a tutor.
  3. Meet your tutor and/or attend classes regularly.

To attend Literacy for Life, learners must: 

  • Live or work in Williamsburg, James City County, or upper York County
  • Commit to attend at least 1 1/2 hours every week
  • Set a goal to reach at least 60 hours of instruction (online classes, computer programs and/or one-on-one tutoring)
