1-on-1 Adult Education

ADULT LITERACY & EDUCATION CENTER

(ALEC)

The Adult Literacy Program was established in 1976 to address the needs of nearly a quarter of the adults in Cumberland County who read at or below a 5th grade level. We assist adults who are challenged in the areas of reading, writing, math, general academics, English language, job readiness and computer skills. One-on-one tutors, group classes and a full computer lab help students to begin their journey to success. These services affect not only the adult student, but also their children and generations thereafter. Literacy is fundamental for creating better health care access, lowering crime rates, and ensuring safer family environments. Last year, trained volunteers from the community worked with 244 adult students, touching 741 lives.  In addition, 6 students gained U.S. citizenship and 103 attained their educational or employment goals.  The gift of literacy is one that will make a lasting difference in our entire community.
