Better Lives Through Learning

Literacy Pittsburgh offers free educational programs for adults and families in Allegheny County and Beaver County. Each year, we help nearly 5,000 people in the Greater Pittsburgh area improve their reading, writing, math, English language, digital literacy, and workplace skills. Adult literacy classes and tutoring move students from learning to earning and help them succeed as workers, parents, and neighbors.

Volunteer Spotlight: Karen
“My experience as a tutor opened my eyes to how hard people will work to achieve goals. My students are fathers, and they work to make their families lives better by bringing them here, by working seven days a week, and by attending tutoring sessions after working all day so they could deal with teachers, doctors, landlords, and grocery store clerks.  Seeing their efforts, talking about their challenges, I see that immigrants are so good for this country.”
