Celebrate Adult Education and


Family Literacy Week 2010!
September 13 – 19, 2010

www.ncladvocacy.org/aefl.html

September 13 – 19, 2010 is Adult Education and Family Literacy Week! Recently passed by
the U.S. House of Representatives and supported by the National Coalition for Literacy, this
is a one-time only dedication to raise public awareness of adult education and family
literacy, assist adult learners in need of literacy services, and support increased access to
adult education and family literacy programs. Use this opportunity to elevate adult
education and family literacy nationwide with policymakers, the media, and the community.

Resources to Help You Prepare

See the NCL Advocacy Clearinghouse and Toolkit for new resources, the latest fact sheets,
sample press releases, and commemoration ideas for program directors, instructors, and
partner organizations to raise awareness. Leverage the attention of International Literacy
Day, September 8, to build momentum for attention to your program.
