Our mission is to improve the quality of life in our community and expand individual potential by teaching adults to read, write, speak, and understand the English language.

Our adult students want to confidently read for pleasure and read to gather information for daily life. Some were born locally; others migrated here. They are motivated to learn so that they can collaborate with co-workers, engage in their children’s school activities, and become lifelong learners. For most, learning to read will help them access jobs that can ensure financial stability for them and their families.

Our volunteers and financial supporters help students become proficient in English, build self-confidence, and ready themselves for living in a high-tech, fast-communicating world. Providing students friendship, acceptance, and resources to learn at their pace, we empower adults to develop more than literacy skills. Committing to the success of our adult students, we create opportunities.

We invite you to join us in our mission!
