Formed in 2005 by the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge Area Chamber and the Mayor’s Office, the Greater Baton Rouge Literacy Coalition (GBRLC) promotes opportunities for adult students of all levels. By building strategic community partnerships, we are creating a strong continuum of services that offers advancement every step of the way. Our programs reach students learning to read, gaining English language skills, preparing for the GED, earning postsecondary credentials and entering the workforce.
GBRLC has partnered with Baton Rouge Community College, Capital Area Technical College, Adult Literacy Advocates, and St. Paul Adult Learning Center to launch the Accelerated Career Education Program (ACE). The program offers GED preparation and training leading to credentials recognized by the construction and healthcare industries.
We are enrolling NOW for our next ACE Class. Call (225) 216-8450 for more information or click below to review our ACE flier.
The ACE Program is supported by WorkReady U of the Louisiana Community & Technical College System as part of their participation in a national initiative of Jobs for the Future. The initiative, called Accelerating Opportunity, aims to significantly increase the number of adult education students earning postsecondary credentials.
