Literacy Services of Wisconsin (LSW) holds a historic leadership role in the adult literacy landscape of Wisconsin. Founded in 1965, Literacy Services is one of the oldest 501(c) 3 non-profit literacy organizations in the area and has developed a powerful one-on-one learning partnership model which empowers undereducated and disadvantaged adults to improve their knowledge and skills to reach for their dreams. On July 1, 2017, Literacy Services joined forces with Milwaukee Achiever Literacy Services through a strategic merger. Together, these two well-respected organizations are delivering quality adult education and training programs in seven neighborhood locations around Milwaukee. Our team of 21 staff members and more than 500 volunteers serve 1000-1200 adults each year.
Our compassionate and effective team of professionals is leading change in our community by engaging volunteers to share their skills in partnership with adults from all walks of life who are driven to succeed. Whether they are learning to read, studying to earn a GED or HSED, or are learning to communicate in English, Literacy Services empowers adult learners to unlock their full potential.
