We invite you to join us in celebrating Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, September 26 – October 1, 2016.
Adult education and family literacy programs serve adult students who need to improve their basic literacy and math skills, improve their oral and written English, obtain a high school equivalence degree, and prepare for community college or vocational training.
Family literacy programs serve parents and their young children, teaching basic skills, English as a Second Language, and parenting skills to adults while their children are provided high quality instruction. These programs are focused on breaking the cycles of low literacy, low education, and poverty.
The Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE) has put together fact sheets and other information to help you reach out to the media and other constituents about the importance of adult education and family literacy programs: http://www.coabe.org/why-it-matters/.
