Literacy Unlimited is a group of volunteers who tutor adults in English as a Second Language, basic literacy, citizenship, and GED preparation.
Established in 1986 and housed in the Framingham Public Library, Literacy Unlimited is a member of Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts.
The organization provides a “solid, comprehensive program for training and supporting volunteers to teach basic reading, writing and/or math skills to adult learners. Our organization is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the need to promote literacy in our community and expand the availability of educational programs that accomplish this. We hold the belief that literacy strengthens society and promotes equality among its members.”
“The tutoring we offer is confidential, individualized, student-centered, and free of charge. Adult learners and tutors, who usually work one-on-one, are carefully matched and supported to insure the best opportunity for the student to reach his/her individual goals. Typical goals our students achieve include becoming employed or become better employed, getting citizenship, finishing a GED, getting a driver’s license, learning to read to their children or simply becoming confident to function in our community,” according to the organization.
