About Us


The Literacy Council of Jackson County is for anyone 18 years or older who needs help with basic skills.

These adult learners usually need assistance with basic English skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They also want help with math skills, passing the GED, English as a Second Language, getting a job or a promotion, succeeding in college, or applying for citizenship.

Potential adult learners take a placement test to determine their skill level.
