Direct beneficiaries per year: GPLC provided services to approximately 4,600 students in 2012.

Geographic areas served: Allegheny County

Programs:    More than 135,000 adults in our area lack the reading, writing or math skills needed to read a utility bill, complete a job application, read a note from a child’s teacher or understand the instructions on a prescription bottle.   Through GPLC’s Adult Basic Education programs, men and women receive free instruction in reading, writing, math, GED preparation, health literacy, computers and workforce skills.  Some students work one-on-one with volunteer tutors and others are enrolled in classroom instruction.   They come to gain the skills they need to move off welfare, obtain jobs that allow them to support their families, make more informed health decisions, encourage their own children in school, and vote for the first time among many other accomplishments. 

The mission of Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council is to ensure that adults and families acquire reading, writing, math, English language, workforce skills and computer skills so they may reach their fullest potential in life and participate productively in their community.
