The Portage County Literacy Council believes that all adults have the right to literacy. We work with adults to help them achieve the ability to read, write, and speak English; understand basic math; and use information to make decisions. Literacy gives adults the tools they need to find and keep sustainable employment, avoid poverty, assist their children, improve their health and wellness, and get involved in the community. We provide one-on-one tutors and select classes and workshops, and increase public awareness of literacy issues facing adults in our community. We are a member of ProLiteracy and Wisconsin Literacy.
