At the Kenosha Literacy Council, we enjoy meeting new adult learners and helping them improve their reading, writing and English Language skills.
Our students are men and women, young and old. Some were born right here in Wisconsin, while others are from countries around the globe. They are single or married; they might be parents or grandparents. Some have jobs and some are looking for jobs. Others are stay-at-home mothers or fathers, or they might be retired. Some of our students went to school for many years, while others did not have this opportunity.
Our students come from all walks of life and have different reasons for becoming students.
