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.
