Mission Statement

AACLC's mission is to promote an improved quality of life at home, school, work, and in the community by providing free and effective, one-on-one literacy, math, and English instruction for low-income county residents desiring to improve their skills.


Transforming lives through the doorway of literacy. All low-income county adults desiring to improve their literacy, math, or English skills can receive free and individualized instruction from trained volunteers.

Flexibility: Students receive individualized instruction, learn at their own pace, and can adjusts their meeting time/place when needed. Instruction occurs in public locations throughout the county, including all 15 county libraries, with convenient day, evening, or weekend options to help students who need flexible scheduling to accommodate their work and family obligations.

Staffing: AACLC leverages the skills and talents of hundreds of adult literacy and math volunteers. They are trained to teach adults in our tutoring program and receive ongoing training and support from mentors, student and tutor coordinators, and participation in quarterly math and literacy workshops. AACLC has received the 2012 - 2018 Top-Rated Great Nonprofit Awards for their 131 5-star reviews from volunteers and students.

Impact: In 2018 AACLC served 247 adults, with personal goals ranging from getting a GED, finding a job or better-paying job, reading to their children or helping them with their homework, becoming a U.S. citizen, or living independently. AACLC now offers math/GED tutoring and ten AACLC students have achieved their GEDs since 2017..
