Literacy DuPage recruits and trains volunteers to tutor adults who wish to improve their English speaking, listening, reading, and/or writing. Sitting side-by-side with learners every day, we aren’t just teaching literacy, we’re changing lives.


Empowering an adult with language will change that person’s life—and yours, too. No foreign language or teaching experience needed. Just time and heart.


More than 100,000 DuPage County residents need help improving their English skills. We dream of reaching them all.


Our tutoring happens in quiet libraries and other public spaces. But in the community, we’re making noise—online and in person.


We’re eager to tell the story of our organization, but even more excited to share the inspiring stories of our learners’ successes.
