Waubonsee Literacy Project Receives Grant

Waubonsee Community College’s Adult Literacy Project has been awarded a $71,800 grant for the upcoming year from the Secretary of State/Illinois State Library Literacy Office. Started in 1985 and housed at the college’s downtown Aurora Campus, the program trains volunteers to provide free reading, writing, math and/or English language instruction to local adults.

Last year, the project included 203 active volunteers who helped more than 1,000 students from 40 countries around the world.
