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.
"As a young girl growing up in Jamaica, I was constantly reminded of he value of education and
the need to work hard in school. Since arriving here,
I have realized the need to find a program what will prepare me to continue on to a higher level of education. ALA has proven to be exactly what I need. It provides me with personalized instruction
and the flexible schedule that I need in order to balance school and family life. I am confident that
the education I am receiving at ALA will prepare me to be successful at that next level of my education,
so that I will be able to pursue my goal of a career
in the medical field."
