About Us

To learn more about the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program, click here.

Every year hundreds of immigrant adults from across New York City come to the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program to acquire the English language and technology skills needed to gain employment, further their education, understand and exercise legal rights and responsibilities, attain U.S. citizenship and otherwise participate in their communities. Our program includes a free 10-month course of study from September through June, an advanced creative writing course taught by the head of NYU’s Gallatin Writing Program, and other courses that enable students to build their English proficiency.
