Instruction and Services:

Adult Basic Education (ABE) 

We provide free small group classes and one-to-one tutoring for adult learners 18 and up who would like to improve their basic reading, writing, and math skills.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

We offer free small group classes and one-to-one tutoring for ESOL students levels 1-5. To take these classes, you must be 18 or older and planning to live in the United States permanently. Please note: Our priority is to serve low-income immigrants and refugees. Individuals on a non-immigrant visa (B, F, M, J, and H are a few examples) are not eligible for this program.

Citizenship Preparation

We offer assistance to adults who want to apply for US citizenship. We can help you apply, as well as prepare for the test through citizenship and civics focused ESOL classes and/or tutoring. Click for more information.

Digital Literacy

We help adults learn basic computer skills, including email, internet, and Google Drive.

GED Preparation

We help adult learners prepare for the GED through classes and tutoring. We also have an online program that our students can use to study at home. Once a student is ready to take the GED test, they can make an appointment at a local GED testing center. Participation in Literacy Source programs leading to a GED qualifies as being "currently in school" for purposes of applying for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
