Program Description

For those who were left behind… for those who just arrived… Literacy Pittsburgh creates a pathway to the American Dream.

Through one-to-one tutoring and small classes, Literacy Pittsburgh offers a safe and supportive environment for students from around the world and around the corner.

Our adult learners earn a high school credential, learn English, obtain U.S. citizenship, go on to college and better jobs, and improve their reading, writing, math, or computer skills. Our programs for children and families foster a love of learning and create a foundation for success in school. All programs are offered free of charge to individuals in Allegheny County and Beaver County.

Literacy Pittsburgh helps men and women gain the skills and knowledge they need to create a more secure future for themselves and their children. With the encouragement of our staff and volunteers, students increase self-confidence and grow as parents, workers, and neighbors.

Literacy Pittsburgh’s mission is Better Lives Through Learning.

Literacy Pittsburgh offers free, personalized learning serving all neighborhoods in Allegheny County through classes and 1-1 or small group tutoring, both in person and online. Our literacy programs focus on college and career readiness, adult education – reading, writing, math, digital skills, GED preparation, English language learning, citizenship preparation, workforce readiness, and family literacy. We help immigrants find resources through Immigrant Services and Connections.
