The National Coalition for Literacy marks National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week each year to raise awareness of adult education and family literacy. This year #AEFLWeek is September 21-26.
Life is the 21st century relies on technology, moves at the lightning speed of technology:
- Job applications are online.
- Teachers email home instructions to parents.
- Doctors and hospitals keep electronic health records.
- Retail coupons are sent to smartphones.
Imagine navigating your daily life with low literacy skills!
Too many adults in our community and across our nation lack the skills they need to get and keep a job, support their families, and succeed in life. Improved literacy can change lives. Here at Craven Literacy Council we offer free, confidential, individualized instruction to adults of Craven County who want help with reading, writing, computing and using technology. We work everyday to put more people on the path to self-sufficiency and success.
