  • About

    Literacy KC offers a welcoming community for adults and families to improve literacy skills and enhance quality of life. With support from volunteers, donors, partners, and the community at large, Literacy KC invests in Kansas City’s greatest asset – our people.

    Each term, staff, tutors, volunteers, and instructors build a collaborative learning environment where adult students expand their reading, writing, math, and digital skills. The personalized approach allows students to shape the instruction they receive and delivers a balanced curriculum, leading to improved literacy and life skills.

    Our Model
    Literacy KC is revolutionizing the way adult literacy education is delivered:

    INSTRUCTOR LED: Qualified instructors teach relevant, responsive, and level-appropriate curriculum.

    TUTOR-DRIVEN: Trained volunteer tutors support the instructors and help meet individual student needs.

    STUDENT-CENTERED: Each student identifies academic and personal goals and instructors design lessons to help them meet these goals.
