THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFTS TO MCLC 2014-2015

When adults learn to read, write, or do basic math, their transformations are nothing short of remarkable. They can find and keep jobs, enjoy better health, and educate their own children. Their new skills enable them to dream big, do more, and move forward. And that means society can move forward, too. Our three basic instructional programs (Adult Basic Education, English as a Second Language and Adult Goal Based Education) are designed to spark this type of lasting change for individuals, communities, and the entire world.
