ABE services provide instruction in reading, writing, and math to adults seeking to improve their skills. As a basic education program for adults, we offer ‘Each One,Teach One individual tutoring to help our students meet their goals. Whether a student’s goal is to achieve functional literacy, improve job skills, or help children with their school work, we are prepared to help learners meet them. In addition, many students hope to attain a GED and we provide certified tutors who augment GED classes offered biweekly across Washington County.  For more information call (724)228-6188 or email jessica@lcswpa.org.

The Baby Book program began in 1994 when the Executive Director, Helen Crunick, envisioned a need for a project which would help break the cycle of inter-generational illiteracy. The Baby Book Bag project features tote bags which are prepared by community volunteers; screen-printed with a special logo; filled with children’s book, community library listings, and literature outlining the importance of reading to babies from birth.

If your organization would like to sponsor this program, your logo will be featured on the bags too. By working with new mothers instilling the importance of reading, the Literacy Council attempts to address the problem at its earliest stage. Over the years, the Literacy Council has distributed more than 27,000 Baby Book Bags to new mothers in our community.  If you or your organization would to volunteer to assist with preparing the Baby Books Bags please call (724) 228-6188 or email jessica@lcswpa.org.
