"Being a mom is great, but I want to do something with my life. I know that I have not received my high school diploma, so I thought getting my GED was the first place to start," said Coleman, who now is enrolled in Harper College's certified nursing assistant program.

Roberta Pennett, a Read to Learn site supervisor, tells of a student originally from Mexico, who she tutored at the Palatine site in preparation for his kitchen certification test. "He passed his certification after a semester with RTL which allowed him to earn a higher salary and get the promotion at his work," Pennett said.

District 214 Community Education offers English as a Second Language (ESL) and GED preparation classes, Read to Learn Adult Literacy/Volunteer Tutoring, Family Literacy, U.S. Citizenship preparation, and other programs.
