The Literacy Project offers free classes to adults and out-of-school youth in Western Massachusetts in beginning literacy as well as GED preparation. We are also helping them to take steps toward post-secondary education and training so they can become productive and engaged members of community. The Literacy Project offers small, comfortable classes taught at three levels: beginning (basic literacy), intermediate (pre-GED) and advanced (GED).  Our professional instructors are assisted by volunteer tutors.  Students work at their own pace, towards their own goals, in a supportive setting of their peers.  With rolling admission, students may begin classes at any time during the year.
