Welcome to the Tarrant Literacy Coalition

The Tarrant Literacy Coalition (TLC) empowers adult learners and those who teach them with high quality literacy services and resources so businesses can hire, people can work and families can thrive. The Adult Education and Literacy Call Center provides information and referral services for adults who are looking for an adult literacy class: 817-402-7555.

The Coalition offers training and technical support to literacy teachers, tutors and volunteers. These individuals work with a wide range of 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, a program based in White Settlement that offers high school equivalency classes two nights a week at the White Settlement Family Resource Center. These classes prepare adults to take the exam required to receive the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE).

TLC also helps coordinate the English language instruction and citizenship classes at Agape Baptist Church on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday nights. Working with The Learning Center of North Texas and Literacy Connexus, TLC staff members also help recruit volunteers who provide individual tutoring for adults who need assistance to improve their reading. All of these classes are offered at no charge to the adult students. Free childcare is available for students enrolled in Project BEST and Agape adult education classes.

The Tarrant Literacy Coalition also operates the Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) 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. Through a collaborative effort with the Tarrant County Adult Education and Literacy Consortium, the Call Center provides referrals to hundreds of adult learners each month. Call 817-402-7555 for help.

To reach one of our staff members at the Coalition, please call our office. Our main number is 817-870-0082 and the Adult Education and Literacy Call Center is 817-402-7555.
