Adult Education and Literacy services are designed to teach eligible persons 16 years of age or older to read and write English and acquire basic skills necessary to function in society and to become more employable, productive and responsible citizens as well as allowing them to continue their education to at least the completion of secondary school.   Individuals and corporations can assist toward increasing the English literacy of Missouri citizens.
