The PCLC is a nonprofit based in Stevens Point. We believe all adults have a right to literacy. We work with adults to help them achieve the ability to read, write, and speak English; and understand and use information to make decisions about their lives. Literacy gives adults the tools they need to care for their families, maintain employment, avoid poverty, understand health information, get involved in the community, access further education, and more.

PCLC offers one-on-one tutors and small group instruction at different times and locations throughout the county in order to increase accessibility. We serve adults with different socioeconomic and racial/ethnic backgrounds. We’re committed to creating a learning environment that is focused on the learners’ goals and advances mutual respect, trust, dignity, and fairness.
