Our mission is to provide accessible and customized tutoring in reading, writing, speaking and understanding English to help adults achieve independence. Established in 1972, Literacy DuPage, formerly known as Literacy Volunteers of DuPage, is a nonprofit, community-based organization. The organization serves over 30 communities in DuPage County. Literacy DuPage trains volunteer tutors to provide customized,learner-centered English language instruction. Tutoring occurs in one-on-one or small group settings at a mutually convenient time and location for both tutors and students. Materials and techniques are provided to allow the tutor to guide the learner towardachievement of personal goals. Tutors incorporate everyday materials such as a newspaper, map, or job application into their lessons.
