Madison College Partnership Update

Literacy Network’s expanded partnership with Madison College, Advanced Advising for Career Transitions, will serve 155 adult learners over the next 3 years. 65% of adult learners tell us they want to study at Madison College, but need help to transition from Literacy Network’s ESL classes to degree and certificate programs.

An anonymous donor has just offered a $50,000 contribution to help us fully fund the Advanced Advising project. Your gift or pledge in 2019 toward the program will be doubled!

Research shows that when an adult learner spends at least 100 hours studying, it results in an annual earnings increase of $9,621! This increase in earnings is often enough to pull a family out of poverty. Your investment in adult literacy makes a huge difference in our community!

Contact Executive Director Jeff Burkhart at (608)244-3911 today to learn how you can support Literacy Network learners making the transition to Madison College degree and certificate programs.
