Welcome to The Dominican Literacy Center ~

Thank you for visiting our website, and for your interest in the Dominican Literacy Center, Aurora. Our programs help women learn to read, write, and speak English, as well as helping immigrant women and men prepare to pass their naturalization test and become new U.S. citizens. All of us on staff and our hundreds of volunteers believe that helping our immigrant brothers and sisters is a worthwhile and even noble venture. We invite you to join us in this venture.
