Literacy Alliance Quarterly Meetings



RSVP here

Join us for our next Quarterly Meeting. At this meeting we hear about the results of the adult education report commissioned by the Office of Children and Families. The report will inform future decisions about how the city can support adult education, and will be used by OCF to work together with partners to strategically coordinate adult education services.


Join us for our next Quarterly Meeting. At this meeting we hear about the return of the myPLACE adult education network now being operated from the Office of Children & Families, which also sponsors adult classes at Community Schools.
