General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Adult Reading Center is to provide free instruction to adults with limited English literacy skills. We provide a nurturing environment that improves reading, writing and basic communication skills in order to help equip:
    • Parents with the language skills needed to empower their children; and
    • All adults with the language skills needed to succeed in the workplace.
    We do this by providing classroom instruction, individual tutoring, and computer-based training. We partner with community organizations that provide opportunities to transition into career training.

  • Overview:
  • To provide an environment where adult learners can thrive by increasing their literacy skills, completing their GED, and learning job seeking soft skills that will enable them to earning a living wage to support their families.

  • History:
  • From a launch in 1987 with 3 learner/tutor pairs, the Adult Reading Center has achieved steady, managed growth over the last 24 years to 5 full-time and 4 part-time staff, 19 part-time instructors, and over 200 volunteers assisting adult learners each year.
    In 1998, with broad community support, the main building was purchased giving the Center a permanent location. In 2002, an in-kind gift of a modular building was received increasing capacity for additional on-site classroom instruction. Through diligent fundraising efforts, the mortgage was paid in full in March 2007.
    In February 2006, the Center was awarded ProLiteracy America Accreditation which acknowledges literacy organizations that are distinguished by superior professional leadership, effective programs, committed governing boards, and outstanding volunteer support.
