Literacy Networking

This page is dedicated to networking among literacy providers: programs that help adults acquire the basic skills they need including literacy, English language proficiency, citizenship, and high school equivalency. This may be directors, coordinators, teachers, and tutors.The more we know about each other, the more we can support each other.

Please take a few minutes and answer the questions below so that we can add your information. You can answer them as a form here.

1. Can you share a personal story or experience that has had a significant impact on your commitment to adult literacy?
2. How do you personally stay motivated and engaged in your work, especially during challenging times?
3. Can you describe the specific programs and services your organization offers to support adult learners and promote literacy skills (i.e., ESL, Literacy, Citizenship, HSE, Digital, Health, and how they are delivered, i.e., one-on-one, small groups, classes)?

4. Could you share a specific success story of an adult learner who has gone through your program and achieved significant personal or professional growth, highlighting how your program assisted in their journey?
5. What is your most effective method to recruit new students?
6. How do you keep your current students engaged so that they keep attending classes?
