Wisconsin Literacy

The Central Wisconsin Literacy Council (CWLC) is a member of Wisconsin Literacy, Inc.

Wisconsin Literacy is a statewide agency formed in 1985 as a coalition of adult, family, and workplace literacy providers.

Wisconsin Literacy’s vision is to strengthen Wisconsin’s workforce, families and communities through literacy by supporting adult, family and workplace literacy programs statewide through program and resource development, information and referral, training, and advocacy.

Each fall, Wisconsin Literacy sponsors the “1200 Tutors in 12 Weeks” recruitment campaign, helping promote literacy initiatives throughout Wisconsin. Since 2011, the CWLC has recruited and trained nearly 70 Tutors.

In addition, Wisconsin Literacy launched the Wisconsin Health Literacy initiative. In 2011, the CWLC participated with both organizations by offering two “Shoo the Flu” programs attempting to reach vulnerable populations. Since then, the CWLC has run its own health literacy programs, reaching more than 500 people with accurate health information.
