What Do You Need Help With?
Thanks to the generous donation of Capital One, the Literacy Council was able to pilot the VELOCITY program with J.D. Clifton Elementary School. Over $50,000 was spent to develop an on-site adult education and testing center including computer kiosks, new furnishings, and instructional resources.
Though the initial project ended, the Literacy Council recognized the importance of bringing services to under-served communities. The model initiated with Capital One’s support has been extended to serve several satellite sites and online adult education instruction.
