Gilmer Learning Center, Inc.
(next to Health Dept)
706.276.1110

10 June 2011

L
augh! Learn! Get a fresh start! All of these things happen regularly at Gilmer Learning Center, Inc.

Located adjacent to the Health Department, Gilmer Learning Center has been helping adults learn in a stress-free environment for almost 20 years. Most adult students are working toward a GED, but this is not true for all. From beginning readers to students brushing up for entrance tests to local colleges or technical schools, as well as students wanting to learn English as a Second Language, all can find a comfortable place to learn here. After taking an initial assessment test, students work on customized learning plans intended to take them to their ultimate goal.

Partnerships are forged daily! Students self-design a schedule and attend when they can fit school into busy lives. Volunteer tutors are available to assist with one-to-one or small group instruction. Ms. Billie Adams, a founding matriarch of adult literacy in Gilmer County, recently returned as a tireless and faithful volunteer instructor. Her many years of helping people learn and a patient, encouraging demeanor convince students they can achieve things they never thought they could.

We’ve been a participant in the Certified Literate Community Program since 1993. As such, we were charged with reducing the rate of undereducated and illiterate adults in Gilmer County by 50% + 1. Our ambitious goal was to raise educational levels for 2,390 students. We’ve far surpassed that, serving 2, 880 as of June 30, 2005. More than 600 people in Gilmer County have earned their GED since our affiliation with this state wide initiative. The state evaluation team visited June 8, 2006. We’ll be receiving our Certified Literate Community status at a board meeting in Atlanta on September 7th.

706.276.1110 rings to a brighter future. No one is too old to learn!
