About ADULT LITERACY LAWRENCE COUNTY
927 MORAVIA ST, NEW CASTLE, PA 16101, US
The agency’s mission is to provide non-traditional educational choices that promote lifelong learning for adult residents and their families who seek to improve their literacy skills in order to successfully realize their full potential as individuals, family members, workers, and citizens.
Our agency opened its doors in 1980. In 1996, the organization’s directors sought non-profit status and became the community-based organization (CBO), Adult Literacy Lawrence County. Today we have a new name, Lifelong Learning Choices, that better represents who we serve and what we offer. Several members of the original board continue to serve. The agency began with a small grant that offered tutoring for adults who couldn’t read. Over the years the components have grown to meet the changing needs of the community, including ABE and GED(r), family literacy, ESL, college prep and technology components.
