Bonnie Entler, Executive Director of Seeds of Literacy

Our Ward 14 office has been working closely with Seeds of Literacy over the last few years in providing them with funding and helping them to leverage their resources to strengthen their programming and services.

Last year, working collaboratively with other City Council members and Mayor Jackson's Administration, Seeds of Literacy obtain additional funds that assisted in the expansion of operations to an east side location at 13815 Kinsman Road - they serve as a city-wide adult literacy program.  Their west side offices are located on the 3rd floor of the US Bank Building at 3104 W. 25th Street (at Clark Avenue).

Also, check out the volunteer opportunities here, and other ways to help including monetary and in-kind contributions here.

Change Your Life Through Education – 
Advice from Seeds of Literacy

Having an education is important. It can change your life in many ways. Getting an education can help you:

  • Find higher-paying jobs.
  • Go to college or trade school.
  • Understand your health.
  • Keep a budget.
  • Express your opinions.
  • Participate in politics.
  • Help your children or grandchildren in school.

At Seeds of Literacy, we take education very seriously. We have free classes for adults in basic education and GED preparation. We want you to walk out of each class knowing more than when you came in! 

At Seeds, each student works at his or her own level and pace. We have tutors to help, too. Seeds has helped thousands of students since 1997. 

Classes are Monday – Thursday, 9 am to 11 am; 1 pm – 3 pm; and 6 pm – 8 pm. Seeds is located at 3104 W 25th Street, 3rd floor (corner of W 25th and Clark Ave.). Seeds has a free, secure parking lot, building security, and is on major bus lines. All classes are free. Registration is every Monday and Tuesday. Call 216-661-7950 for more information.

Here are some ways you can improve your educational skills:
  • Read to your children – this is one of the best things a parent can do. When you read to your children, they do better in school.
  • Make a schedule for important things like family, work, and school. This helps you find the time to do them.
  • Read outside of class. The more you read, the more you know.
  • Write your goal down. Then think of the steps you need to reach it.  

We hope to see you soon! For more information, call 216-661-7950 or visit or facebook/seedsofliteracy.
