September 19th to 26th is National Adult Education and Family Literacy week. There are many talented and capable individuals among us who, for myriad reasons, lack a high school credential. An estimated 42,000 Vermonters do not have a high school diploma or GED. These folks face more limited job opportunities. They are also the most likely to lose employment during an economic downturn.
Vermont Adult Learning is here to serve Vermont residents, ages 16 and older. We assist those seeking to earn a high school credential, learn English, or prepare for a new job or continuing education. We are also here for Vermonters who want to brush up on their reading, writing, math and computer skills. Our services are free. Learning is highly individualized, tailored to students’ needs. It is never too late to learn. Our passion to help students succeed drives our work. We are here to help, one aspiring student at a time.
