“I wish there had been a program like this for my parents when we were new to America. It allows kids to stay kids when parents can speak and access information for themselves.”

When his young granddaughter asked for help with her homework Phillip Morgan knew it was time for him to get some help as well. He did what any wonderful grandfather would do, he not only told his grandchildren that education is important, he became a great role model.
Lorena Villalobos is a model of ambition and dedication. Her goal of becoming a successful entrepreneur was realized in her fifth year of classes with Literacy Network.
With all the smart people all around there, I was surprised she asked me to help her. Then I realized here I am helping her, not even thinking about it, and just a year ago I would have had to ask someone else for help. That’s when it hit me I really am making progress.
“Anywhere parents are unable to communicate and access information on their own, their families are left vulnerable and dependent on others. Both Literacy Network and Literacy at the Well address the unique needs of adult learners so they can gain skills to improve their family’s quality of life, and to strengthen their community. Working to forward the mission of Literacy Network, it is an excellent investment in my hometown.”
I am inspired to give to the Literacy Network because I find my learner to be inspirational. He is a very willing and appreciative learner. He’s there every week/ He always does his work. He is grateful for our time together and appreciative of the Literacy Network.
The most recent semester of classes at Literacy Network saw another successful class of computer literacy.
Before he could finish high school in Mexico, José Luis de Hilario started working. He has lived in the U.S. for more than ten years. He first found Literacy Network because he had the goal of improving his spoken and written English to communicate better with his co-workers.
This summer, a group of adult learners who are a part of Literacy Network’s refugee program worked with RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) of Dane County’s “Bus Buddies” program to visit the Chazen Museum of Art.
