Adult Literacy Advocates (ALA) is a Capital Area United Way Community Partner that has provided education programs in the Baton Rouge area since 1966. ALA provides a variety of classes to 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, state, and nation.
"ALA has helped me to become a better person. If someone wants to come to ALA, I will tell them to come. I will tell them that if you want to learn, it will be a great day for you and it will change your life. I have come too far to go back now and I will do it because I put my mind to it.
The teachers at Adult Literacy Advocates will encourage you, push you, and they will open up the world to you. When I started, it seemed hard and I thought I would never be able to learn again. It had been so long since I was in school. In the process, I have lost those fears. I am doing things I dared not do before.”
“ALA is a bunch of good people doing good things for other good people.”
