Adult & Family Literacy

websiteBURLESON4Family Literacy program

As part of a larger effort to increase literacy and educational attainment, for adults as well as children, most AVANCE-El Paso sites also offer adult ESL and GED classes and extended early education activities for their children.  The general requirement is to have a child less than 5 years old.  Adult students are either parenting program participants or graduates.  At four schools (Burleson, Lamar, Lee, and Newman) in El Paso ISD, parents and children in fact attend four days weekly, as part of the Even Start program.

 Adult and family literacy is offered as an addition to the basic parenting program at the following locations:
