ST. PAUL, Minn. (March 11, 2015) — Everyday, St. Paul’s free adult basic education classes are helping adults to move ahead in their lives and careers. But many other people are not aware that these classes, including GED, job skills, computer skills, college prep and English as a Second Language, are available to them at no cost, at convenient community locations throughout the city.
That’s why the Saint Paul Community Literacy Consortium (SPCLC) is hosting the Saint Paul Adult Learning Fair, Tuesday, March 24, noon-2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. at Rondo Community Library, 461 North Dale, St. Paul.
At the Fair, representatives of St. Paul agencies that offer free adult classes will be on hand to provide information about their classes and other helpful resources available at their agencies. The Minnesota Literacy Council, Hmong American Partnership, International Institute of Minnesota, MORE, Vietnamese Social Services and the Hmong Cultural Center are among the agencies participating in the event.
“Anyone who is interested in learning about these great free learning opportunities should stop by the Fair,” said Tesa Johnson, SPCLC community engagement coordinator. “It’s a one-stop shop for free adult classes. You can ask questions and get information from the various agencies, all at once and in one location.”
Everyone is welcome to attend this kid-friendly event. Refreshments will be served and there will be a drawing for gift cards.
“We invite everyone to stop by, and to bring family or friends along as well,” said Johnson.
Started in 1994, the Saint Paul Community Literacy Consortium works to increase adult literacy and to expand the availability of adult basic education services. Learn more at SPCLC.org.
