Make a Difference

At the Learning Center, students like Gloria have the opportunity to develop skills in reading, writing, math, and related subjects to prepare for the GED/HiSet exams. Watch Gloria’s story to learn how YOU can make a difference in a student’s life by joining our team of volunteers.

Helping adults improve their literacy skills is an important task that needs training. We highly encourage our tutors to partake in an offsite 12-hour tutor training through Literacy Works or an online tutor training through the Illinois State Library (ISL).
