Adult Education

In New York, there are over 3.5 million individuals who lack their high school diploma, English language proficiency, or both. Adult literacy programs assist adults to become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency, and those who are parents/guardians to obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children. Expanding Adult Literacy Education would allow more New Yorkers to access these opportunities.
