Program Overview

Tarrant Literacy Coalition sponsors Project BEST classes for high school equivalency instruction at the White Settlement ISD Family Resource Center two nights a week during the school year and one night a week each summer. TLC also offers a reading tutorial program called L.E.A.R.N. for Life, in which a trained volunteer works one-on-one with an adult learner that struggles with any aspect of reading, with the ultimate goal of transitioning into a workforce program. Lastly, the Adult Education and Literacy Call Center helps adults find a class near their home or work: call 817-402-7555 for more information about classes offered by Tarrant Literacy Coalition or one of its partners in Tarrant County or surrounding areas.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Tarrant Literacy is to empower adult learners and those who teach them with high quality literacy services and resources so businesses can hire, people can work, and families can thrive. We accomplish this by working with more than 200 different community and faith-based literacy providers ­– providing training and technical support to help them do a better job with their students, to help them serve more students, and they give them the tangible tools (such as books, classroom materials, and teacher supplies) to help them help their students.
