PVAEC celebrates National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week September 12, 2011

Adult Literacy Programs are an Investment in the Future

 

September 12, 2011, Dover-Foxcroft.ME. – Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative  (Guilford, Milo, Dexter, Dover-Foxcroft and all the surrounding towns) is part of a national network of organizations offering literacy programs to educate adults and help fight growing national unemployment.

Beginning September 12, the United States will commemorate the third annual National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week. According to ProLiteracy, the oldest and largest organization of adult literacy and basic education programs in the nation, more than 30 million adults in the U.S. lack the most basic literacy skills and 15 percent of Americans without a diploma don’t have jobs. ProLiteracy provides almost 1,000 community-based literacy organizations, including PVAEC, with tools to help educate adult learners and help them meet the demands of today’s workforce.

“Adult Education and Family Literacy Week recognizes the critical role of education in helping our local residents reach their full potential,” said Thelma Regan, Director, PVAEC.   “Literacy helps families be healthier, support themselves through work and contribute more fully to the community.”

“Low literacy costs the nation more than two hundred billion dollars each year in lost productivity, as well as an additional one to two billion in health and safety issues,” said David C. Harvey, president and CEO of ProLiteracy. “Every dollar spent on adult literacy and education provides returns to the country through higher employment, added tax revenues, reduced welfare payments and less crime.”

In recognition of Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, PVAEC is inviting the public to stop by our main office in Dover-Foxcroft and discover what adult education can do for you.
