Empower Lives as a Kenosha Literacy Council Volunteer!

Are you passionate about education and helping others? The Kenosha Literacy Council needs you! We’re actively seeking dedicated volunteers to tutor immigrants, refugees, and life-long Americans in reading, writing, and speaking English. Help our students achieve life’s necessities like completing job applications, helping their children with homework or understanding medicine labels. With many tutoring options available, you’re sure to find one that fits your schedule!

The Kenosha Literacy Council’s need for volunteer tutors is growing everyday. 7% of adults in Kenosha County lack the basic literacy skills needed to function in everyday life. 13% of Wisconsin adults 18-24 and 10% of adults 25+ do not have a high school diploma or the equivalent. 46% of Wisconsin’s foreign born population over five years old do not speak English well. With your help, we can change these statistics and transform lives through the power of language and education.

We conduct multiple trainings each year. Check out our Calendar page or give us a call at (262-654-7323) to find out when the next training is scheduled.
