Kenosha Literacy Council (KLC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established in 1965. Our organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors, and we are located at the Uptown Branch of the Kenosha Public Library. At KLC, we believe that literacy is a basic human right and the foundation for lifelong learning. We are a group of teachers, learners, tutors, volunteers, and donors all working together to improve adult literacy in Kenosha County. Our programs teach reading, writing, and speaking skills to adults and families so they can achieve financial independence, good health, and greater involvement in our community.
We offer a wide variety of programs to help adults improve their skills, focusing on health literacy, financial literacy, citizenship, workplace literacy, and more. With the help of over 200 volunteer tutors, we assist over 600 adults each year. Whether you are interested in becoming a student or a volunteer tutor, KLC is here to help you achieve your goals and improve your literacy skills.
