    Project CARE (Community Adult Reading Experience), which was founded in 1986 and is funded by a grant from the Illinois Secretary of State, is Morton College’s volunteer adult literacy program and serves the communities of Berwyn, Cicero, Stickney, Lyons, Forest View, McCook, and the surrounding areas, including Chicago.

    Our trained, volunteer tutors help adult students who seek assistance with reading and writing, and/or learning English as a Second Language. Tutoring services are free and are available to all eligible students.

    Project CARE students have access to the Adult Education Computer Lab and educational software programs that can help build a variety of skills. Tutors are available to help students use the Adult Education Computer Lab effectively.

    Project CARE is a member of Proliteracy America, the largest adult literacy organization in the US.
