2016 Annual Recognition Luncheon

Literacy DuPage learners tell amazing stories.

Learners and Tutors Literacy DuPage tutors and learners at the Annual Recognition Luncheon.

Stories that move us, make us laugh, make us cry, and make us eager to change more lives through literacy.

At our Annual Recognition Luncheon on September 17, 250 people were moved by the stories of Shabnam and Jorge, award-winning learners who achieved life-changing goals with Literacy DuPage. In celebration of their success - and the daily achievements and commitment of hundreds of Literacy DuPage learners and tutors - we are sharing a few of their words here.
