About Us

The Winnebago County Literacy Council creates opportunities for people to read, write, and speak English, and perform everyday skills with confidence.  Our vision is to create an engaging community where everyone has the opportunity to realize his or her potential through literacy.  Our core values are empowerment, compassion, collaboration, inclusion, commitment, and a focus on outcomes.
