Literacy leads to gainful employment, financial and family stability, good health care, and better outcomes for the next generation.
This is where Chatham Literacy comes in. Chatham Literacy transforms lives in the following three areas:
1) Traditional Literacy in which we help adults to improve their basic education such as reading, writing, and math; to prepare for the GED or high school diploma; to enroll in a vocational degree; or to ready themselves for training opportunities to advance their work.
2) Civics and Language Literacy in which we teach English language learners how to speak, read and write, and understand English; we help prepare adults for the citizenship exam.
3) Life Skills Literacy in which we prepare adults for expectations and norms in today’s workplace; we do that by offering workforce soft skills training, computer literacy and financial literacy.
