Local Spanish speakers who never had the opportunity to attend school will now be able to learn to read and write in Spanish. This will give them the foundational skills, and confidence, to learn English, read with their children, gain better employment and more fully engage in their communities.

If you know someone who would benefit from the program, or if you would like more information, please contact the Adult Learning Center at 559-782-7493.
