A community based partnership between business, education, and government committed to improving the literacy levels of children, families, and workers in the Wiregrass Technical College Region of GA.
We assist non-reading and low-level reading (Grade 5 or below) adults to become functionally literate and offer the opportunity for clients to familiarize themselves with typing and word processing skills in our computer lab. ALAI recruits and trains volunteers to provide these services. Services include: LWR Reading Level Assessment, Private One-on-One Tutoring, ESL (English as a Second Language), and provides reading materials
Free Adult Education classes: Basic level designed to teach basic reading, writing, math, and language skills to adults performing on a 0-4 grade level, Intermediate level-designed to teach adults who have a minimal competence in reading, writing, math, and language and who are performing on grade levels 5-8, Secondary (GED) designed to teach all content areas required to pass the GED test.

In order to prepare individuals to pass the GED, the Adult Education Program has classes that are specifically designed for adults who have different needs, backgrounds, and skills.
