  • High School Equivalency Graduation Celebration

    Congratulations to all of the adult learners who received their Certificate of High School Equivalency in the past year. This year's celebration was a wonderful evening for the students, their friends and family members and we are so proud of each and every one. We are especially proud of Charmaine Parramore, our Project BEST student who gave the student commencement address. She inspired all of us with her message, reminding the students that HSE graduation is not the end, but rather the beginning of the next step in their journey. Check out photos of the evening on our Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/TarrantLiteracy

Welcome to the Tarrant Literacy Coalition

The Tarrant Literacy Coalition (TLC) offers training and technical support to teachers and volunteers from community and faith based literacy programs that provide reading, writing, math, English language, citizenship and basic life and work skills for adult learners.

We also work with adult learners through Project BEST, offering high school equivalency classes two nights a week at the White Settlement Family Resource Center. TLC helps oversee a program of English language instruction at Agape Baptist Church on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday nights. Working with The Learning Center of North Texas and Literacy Connexus, we help coordinate individual tutoring for adults who need assistance to improve their reading

The Tarrant Literacy Coalition also operates the Adult Education and Literacy Call Center to provide information and referral services to adults in Tarrant County who need help to find an adult literacy class that meets their needs.

To reach someone at the Coalition, please call our office at 817-870-0082 weekdays, or complete this form and we will contact you.
