100,000 Colorado adults, born in the US, read below the equivalent of a 4th grade level. Many other adults seek English as a Second Language classes, assistance to prepare for high school equivalency tests, or support in learning essential digital skills. You can provide teachers and tutors with the training they need to help adult learners improve their literacy skills. Learner success relies on educator success. Educator success begins with your contribution.
I learned a lot of things that are already helping me be a better volunteer with Boulder Library's Conversations in English program!

I want to thank you for your presentation at Saturday's workshop. Your session was, in my opinion, the most valuable for the kind of tutoring I do.

The LCC map provided by the Literacy Coalition of Colorado is an invaluable resource for our state. As an adult education provider in Denver and Arapahoe Counties, Spring Institute frequently accesses the map to locate resources for adult learners that are close to where they work and live. We know that convenient access is critical in helping individuals take the first step to learn English or earn their high school equivalency and truly impact their lives.
