Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County

Who We Are

The  mission of the Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County is to provide individualized educational services for adult learners to improve academic and life skills in order to pursue their personal, professional, and life goals.  The Center has been operating since 1988 and in 2013 became an independent 501(c)(3) organization.  Tutoring services are provided by dedicated and trained volunteers.  Students are asked to pay a nominal registration fee, then ongoing tutoring services are provided free of charge.

 

 

What We Do

The Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County provides a wide range of literacy and academic services for adult learners.  Through a core of dedicated, trained volunteers, the ALC offers individualized programs for adult learners in:

  • English as a Second Language (ESL)-  For English language learners a student-centered, standards-based curriculum is used to develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
  • Adult Basic Education (ABE) - For individuals wishing to improve a wide range of academic skills including preparation for college entrance
  • General Education Development (GED) - For individuals looking to prepare for the high school equivalency exam.
  • Citizenship instruction - For individuals wishing to take the citizenship exam instruction is offered in language and civics.

Tutors work with students on a one-to-one basis, usually meeting once or twice a week. Students and tutors set their own schedules, during the day, night, or weekend, to best accommodate school, family and job responsibilities.
