Adult Literacy and Language Programs

Adult Literacy and Language Programs (also known as ABE [Adult Basic Education]) are federally funded through a competitive grant process administered through the State Department of Education. These programs serve Nevadans who are functioning below the high school completion level with an emphasis on career and college readiness through reading, numeracy and English literacy programs.

Adult Literacy and Language Programs help Nevadans improve their literacy levels and achieve their goals, such as:

  • Earn a High School Equivalency Certificate
  • Get or keep a job
  • Get off welfare
  • Transfer to college or other career & technical training programs
  • Learn English language, skills, understand US culture, and participate in society
  • Help their children with homework so they can be successful in school
  • Read and follow healthcare instructions
