DC Adult & Family Literacy Coalition is an alliance of adult learners, educators, advocates, public and private program providers, foundations and individuals from the District of Columbia to promote more effective adult education. One of our goals is to develop ways for the adult education community to share best practices in DC areas. This committee was created to facilitate that sharing. We focus on sharing best practices in assessment, teaching, curriculum development, management, and more.
Vision: All adult residents of the District of Columbia will have the literacy, math and technology skills they need to meet their career and life goals. The city will have a high-quality, easy-to-access system of education for adults who do not yet have these skills.
Mission: To advance the cause of literacy, numeracy and technology skills for all adults in DC by advocating for policy that supports these goals, sharing best practices and raising public awareness of adult & family literacy. We believe all adult residents of the District of Columbia should have the literacy, math and technology skills to meet their career and life goals. We also believe that the city should have a high quality, easy to access system of education for adults who do not yet have these skills.
Committees: We advance our mission through the work of three committees: Adult & Family Education Awareness, Best Practices, and Public Policy. A Steering Committee is responsible for the overall direction of the coalition and for coordinating the work of the committees.
