Providing free basic education and high school equivalency classes to adults.
The Literacy Project (TLP) provides free classes to adults in basic skills, high school equivalency, and college and career readiness in five location and online. It provides programs and opportunities that support participants to engage meaningfully and equitably in the economic, social, cultural and civic life of their communities. The Literacy Project has locations in Amherst, Greenfield, Northampton, Orange, and Ware. TLP relies on approximately 100 community volunteers each year to take part in all aspects of their programs, from tutoring students to maintaining computers to raising much-needed funds. Most volunteers assist in classes, working under the direction of the staff instructor, once a week for a few hours.
