Organizer

Literacy Center of West Michigan

The Literacy Center of West Michigan is committed to bringing about a just and vibrant West Michigan through the power of literacy. 

The Literacy Center works with adults, both native speakers of English and English language learners, who read below a 9th grade level and want to improve their literacy. We are at the forefront of adult education. Our programs meet learners where they are with one-on-one tutoring, employment-focused classes, and family literacy opportunities, all at no cost to the learner. 

With 55,000 adults in Kent County limited by their literacy skills, we are eager to expand our capacity to serve even more learners.
