Community Literacy

Learning a new language isn’t easy, but we can help. Our Community Literacy program will support you with either one-on-one or small group tutoring as you learn English.

Get Started

At Erie House, trained volunteers will help you develop language skills—speaking, reading and writing—to provide you with more job opportunities and confidence as you develop relationships with others in the community.
 

Get Involved

Investing 1-2 hours a week can make a difference in the lives our adult learners. If you enjoy helping others and would like to get to know others in your community, sign up to volunteer in our Community Literacy program.
