Family Literacy

Literacy Pittsburgh’s Family Literacy program provides free literacy programs for adults and children throughout Pittsburgh. Childcare is provided for ages birth to Kindergarten. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday, 9:30 am – 12 pm or 11:30 am – 2:00 pm.

The Family Literacy program offers learning opportunities for both parents and children. We can help you get a GED diploma so you can get a better job. We can help you with math and reading so you can pass the entrance test for job training or college. We can also help you learn English or get ready for the U.S. citizenship exam. If you would like to become a student in this program, please call 412-881-6171.

If you are looking for volunteer opportunities in Pittsburgh, please consider becoming a literacy tutor. Visit the Volunteers section of our website to learn how you can give back to your community by helping a student in your neighborhood get a better job and support their children in school.

The Family Literacy program is proud to work with many partner organizations in Pittsburgh, including South Hills Interfaith Movement, WQED Multimedia’s STEAM program, Whitehall Borough Library, local head start programs, Venture Outdoors, UPMC School of Pharmacy and 412 Food Rescue.
