The Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition advocates for and develops implementation strategies for improving adult literacy and the adult basic education system via a coordinated effort to:

    • Improve the quality and build the capacity of adult basic education programs.
    • Foster an adult education framework that adequately transitions learners into the workforce or post-secondary education.
    • Promote equitable access to quality education for all ages throughout the city.

As a coalition, we promote equal access to high quality, lifelong learning opportunities in order to build healthy and sustainable communities. CCLC has been working closely with 40 organizations for over 10 years.
