In observance of Adult Education and Family Literacy Week in Illinois, Lincoln Land Community College is highlighting the free services offered to individuals 16 and over by its Adult Education department.
“We offer classes to prepare individuals to obtain a high school equivalency certificate or master the English language,” said Jamil Steele, director of LLCC Adult Education. “These classes are funded through combined state and federal funds administered through the Illinois Community College Board and help students improve skills that lead to further education and employment.”
“We urge anyone who could benefit from our services to ‘move ahead with adult ed,’” added Steele.
In addition to high school equivalency preparation and English as a Second Language classes, the program offers adult basic education (pre-high school equivalency) and career pathways programs.
