Adult Literacy Center is hosting virtual fundraiser

 

The Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County is hosting Literacy Week, a virtual fundraiser, from Sept. 19 to 25 in the hope of raising $25,000 to provide free, one-on-one tutoring to Ozaukee County residents.

The ALC relies on donations from individuals and businesses to offer instruction to students who need to learn English, improve basic skills, find a new job, become U.S. citizens or who need tutoring for college entrance or support once admitted.

The center is helping people understand the vital role adult education and literacy plays.

In Ozaukee County, 6% of residents live at or below the poverty level. Increasing levels of literacy can free people from poverty and a need for social services leading to improved employment opportunities and self-sufficiency.

Participation in basic skills programs like those provided by the center increase adult employment, income, high school equivalency and post secondary education attainment and civic participation.

The Adult Literacy Center has been in operation for more than 30 years and is housed at Grace Lutheran Church in Grafton.
