Welcome to ALA
Adult Literacy Advocates (ALA) is a Capital Area
United Way Community Partner that has provided education
programs in the Baton Rouge area for 51 years.
ALA provides a variety of classes that help our students achieve personal, work and family goals by improving their literacy skills. As a community group, we also seek to increase economic development and the overall quality of life in Greater Baton Rouge through helping others further their education to become more productive, qualified workers, neighbors, friends and family who can contribute to our community.
"Finding ALA was a must. I had become frantic thinking it was too late for me. I have a future now. Life is so much brighter. I'm learning - who would have thought! I'm not just sliding along, not just coming in through the back door, but really learning. ALA not only teaches us about knowledge, but self-worth also. Now I wake up knowing that I'm going somewhere and that I have a lot to give of myself."
Debra Bessie, ALA Graduate and current BRCC Student
