The mission of Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council is better lives through learning.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

GPLC provided services to approximately 4,300 students in 2015.

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.

I had no plans for furthering my education when a friend recommended the GPLC. Through them and the Urban League I now have my GED and am well on my way to attending a course at Bidwell.
