Program 1

Metropolitan/Delta Adult Literacy Council: 1. Recruits, trains, matches, and supports paid and volunteer teachers for GED, basic literacy, family literacy programs, and job-training programs. 2. Recruits, assesses, and enrolls adults for its four programs. 3. Manages a "Free Your Mind" family literacy program, working with parents at Head Start sites throughout the Washington, DC area. 4. Conducts small group classes for adults seeking their high school equivalency certificate. 5. Provides job training in the areas of child development associate and office assistant. Since 1987 the Council has trained more than 900 volunteer tutors who have contributed more than 48,000 hours of volunteer time. These volunteers have tutored more than 1,100 new readers from all sections of Washington, D.C. More than 793 students have enrolled in our GED and Family Literacy programs. "Statistics ...indicate that the District has the highest unemployment rate in the Nation at 8.8 percent, and that more than 16,000 families live below the poverty level. Employers report that the biggest barrier to hiring local adults is the lack of language and math skills."(Adrienne T. Washington) Studies show that children with parents who read do better in reading comprehension. Many of the parents in our Family Literacy Program are enrolled in English as a Second Language courses. The Council also provides health and nutrition courses, AIDS, drug abuse, and such other programs to strengthen the family.
