When Teng Chue Yang first registered for English class, he had no faith in his ability to learn English. But today, Mr. Yang speaks English very well, enough so that he inspired his daughter to also attend English class at HAP.
The Saint Paul Community Literacy Consortium empowers the community by building literacy in a collaborative, inclusive, comprehensive manner. Enhanced literacy and improved basic skills support a high quality of life by providing preparation for meaningful employment and higher education, fostering better K12 outcomes and stronger families, and supporting economic development. SPCLC contributes significantly to workforce development by partnering statewide with DEED, the Ramsey County WIB, and other organizations.
SPCLC serves as a statewide resource for effective Adult Basic Education (ABE) programming, as a public policy resource at all levels, and as a national model for effective public/private collaboration to meet literacy needs.
SPCLC is a primary convener of the Northstar Digital Literacy Project.
