The Augusta University Literacy Center has partnered with Augusta Technical College to offer free adult educational classes starting Jan. 5.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, students can take advantage of adult literacy and high school equivalency preparation courses at the HUB for Community Innovation, 731 Chafee St. in Augusta.
“We are so excited to announce this partnership with Augusta Technical College, who will bring their expertise with adult learners to the Augusta University Literacy Center at the HUB for Community Innovation,” said Betsy VanDeusen, PhD, director of the AU Literacy Center.
The Literacy Center provides children, adolescents, and adults from the Metro-Augusta area with high quality literacy-related educational experiences that promote the development of life-long readers and writers.
“Augusta Technical College is proud to collaborate with Augusta University’s Literacy Center at the Hub,” said Angela Moseley, dean of adult education at Augusta Technical College. “This is a wonderful opportunity for adult literacy students. Students will not only have access to an education, but they will also have access to wrap-around services, all in one location. We are very excited about this partnership and potential it has to positively affect families as a whole.”
