The mission of Alaska Literacy Program is to change lives through literacy
Since 1974, ALP has been providing literacy services to Anchorage residents and other parts of the state. ALP recruits, trains, certifies and supports volunteer teachers and tutors who work one-on-one or in a classroom setting teaching reading, writing and speaking English to adults. ALP supports eight classrooms and one computer lab on-site at 1345 Rudakof Circle #104. ALP provides year-round programs for adults and families with young children, concentrating on those most in need: the beginning learners in reading and English. ALP changes lives and enriches our community by teaching adults literacy skills to increase their self-sufficiency. It is the philosophy of Alaska Literacy Program that adults have the right to be free from the burden of illiteracy – free to function as independent, productive citizens.
