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. We provide 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 eliminate illiteracy in our community and expanding 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.
We are supported by Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts and Community Development Block Grants. Our big fundraiser is held in May with raffle baskets displayed in the libraries. We also conduct an end-of-year appeal, but contributions are welcome at any time of the year!
