Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Adult Basic Education is for people who already speak English but want to improve their reading and writing or math.

The Central Wisconsin Literacy Council provides tutoring to local adults who want to improve their English reading, writing, and basic math skills in order to complete education and/or secure employment. 

Adult Basic Education small group

Adult students work with trained volunteer tutors to develop basic reading, writing and math skills, depending on the student’s needs and interests.

Already Have a Diploma?

Since one of our goals is helping adults develop the skills necessary to obtain (better) employment and more wages, we’ll still help you even if you already have a high school diploma or a job.

All adults registering for help must pay an initial $25 fee, and complete a 3-week Orientation to qualify for a Tutor match. Orientation takes place in each of our resource centers throughout the year, and includes paperwork, testing, and goal-setting.
