The Adult Literacy Center of Ozaukee County provides a wide range of literacy and academic services for adult learners. Through a core of dedicated, trained volunteers, the ALC offers individualized programs for adult learners in:
- English as a Second Language (ESL)- For English language learners a student-centered, standards-based curriculum is used to develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
- Adult Basic Education (ABE) - For individuals wishing to improve a wide range of academic skills including preparation for college entrance
- General Education Development (GED) - For individuals looking to prepare for the high school equivalency exam.
- Citizenship instruction - For individuals wishing to take the citizenship exam instruction is offered in language and civics.
Tutors work with students on a one-to-one basis, usually meeting once or twice a week. Students and tutors set their own schedules, during the day, night, or weekend, to best accommodate school, family and job responsibilities.
