About Us

Adult Education provides services to assist adults to obtain the skills necessary for employment and economic self-sufficiency. AEFLA funded programs target adults who:

  • lack sufficient mastery of basic educational skills to enable them to function effectively on the job, in the family and in society; or
  • do not have a secondary school diploma or its equivalent level of education; or
  • are unable to speak, read, or write the English language.
