More Adult Education Programs
English Language Acquisition (ELA) is a language program designed for adults, 16 years and older, whose native language is not English. The ELA program helps students improve reading, writing, speaking and listening skills from literacy to the advanced level. Students improve English skills while also learning about U.S. culture. There is no tuition fee for these classes.
To strengthen literacy in our community, Waubonsee trains and places volunteers to provide English language tutoring to adults who want to improve their reading, writing and math skills, or learn English. Learn more about participating in a literacy program or becoming a volunteer tutor.
If you want to gain specific knowledge and skills quickly, Waubonsee Works (formerly Youth Services Programs) is an exciting option. Waubonsee Works provides free tuition and books if you are interested in earning a High School Equivalency Certificate (GED) or a short-term certificate at Waubonsee Community College.
