Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley Adult Education Celebrates National Adult Education & Family Literacy Week

Bryan/College Station—Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley Adult Education, in partnership with the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE), invites you to join us in celebrating National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, September 19-25, 2021.

Over 30 million Americans over the age of 25 – or one out of every ten U.S. citizens – do not have a high school diploma. The Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley Adult Education is working to change that.

Research from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that job growth for individuals without a high school diploma or some college experience is about zero or even negative. By 2024, 48 percent of job openings will be middle-skill and 32 percent will be high-skill. This means that in less than 3 years, nearly 80 percent of all job openings will require more than a high school degree. Adults who participate in Workforce Solutions Brazos Valley Adult Education have the opportunity to explore career pathways and hone their skills so that they can advance their careers through postsecondary education or training.

Adult education and family literacy programs serve adults who need to improve their basic literacy and math skills, improve their oral and written English, obtain a high school equivalence degree, and prepare for postsecondary education or training.

Family literacy programs serve parents and their young children, teaching basic skills, English as a Second Language, and parenting skills to adults while their children are provided high quality instruction. These programs are focused on breaking the cycles of low literacy, low education, and poverty.
