Literate Worker Initiative

A collaboration to help adults increase their basic skills and find employment in Tucson and surrounding communities

BACKGROUND & PURPOSE OF THIS SITE

Launched in 2007, the Literate Worker Initiative is a multi-agency effort to improve and coordinate local education and employment services for adults with limited English language and/or basic skills. The Initiative has had great success addressing service gaps and establishing a continuum of services to help individuals progress toward their education and employment goals with minimal barriers.

This site is designed for those who work directly with adults -- teachers, tutors, navigators and caseworkers -- so they can quickly and easily access information to facilitate cross-agency referrals.
