Mission, Vision and Values

Mission, Vision & Values


To provide opportunities for success through lifelong learning, and learning for life.


Adults have the skills to transform their lives, sustain their families and strengthen their communities.


Empowerment – Our programs empower adult learners to set and meet goals to become the best version of themselves.

Success – Provide an environment of collaborative learning experiences, community partnerships and education innovations that allows our students to acquire the deep skills required to achieve the next step in their life goals. Our volunteers, staff, and board members are empowered to recommend changes that will foster the success of all our stakeholders.

Respect and Integrity – Our compassionate and caring approach and interactions are highly respectful of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Our integrity rests in our word, our deeds and actions to ensure trustworthiness and confidentiality.

Sustainability – The Literacy Council will make sound governance, program and fiscal decisions that honor the organizations ability to grow and thrive so that more adults in need can access our services. Our volunteers, staff, and board members are encouraged to actively advocate for adult education, lead by example and continuously refresh their skills to provide the highest quality experiences for our students.


DONATE INVEST in your community

Supporting adult literacy and basic education in your community is a sound investment. Adult education programs have measurable returns. This comes in the form of increased tax revenue and reduced reliance on social services. Educated citizens work, pay taxes and give back to their communities.
