    Adult Education and Family Literacy Week

    Adult Education and Family Literacy Week is on Sunday, September 20 through Saturday, September 26. 36 million adults in the United States struggle with basic academic skills making it difficult to function effectively as workers, parents, citizens, and consumers in today’s society. Adult literacy intersects with almost every socioeconomic issue - parenting, health, workforce development, and poverty. To address these issues effectively, we must invest in educating parents and workers. Adult education helps break the cycles of intergenerational illiteracy and poverty by giving adults the skills they need to be successful as workers and parents.

    Please take a moment to view our Adult Education and Family Literacy Week flyer for more information.
