FLC accredited by ProLiteracy

LAPEER — The Family Literacy Center was awarded accredited status this week by ProLiteracy America, the U.S. Programs Division of ProLiteracy Worldwide.

FLC has served the Lapeer County area for 26 years by helping adults improve their reading, mathematics, listening, writing, speaking, and technology skills.

“We are proud to add the Family Literacy Center to our growing list of accredited organizations,” Peter Waite, executive director of ProLiteracy America, said in a news release.

“They have demonstrated that their program meets the highest national standards for volunteer literacy programs and that their services to the community are effective. We applaud the many volunteers, staff, and students who have devoted their time and effort to achieve this goal.”

ProLiteracy America’s Accreditation provides literacy programs with a comprehensive process for: 1) conducting an organizational self-assessment; 2) developing program improvement plans; and 3) demonstrating that their organization meets the highest standards for governance, program management, program operations, and volunteer development.

The non-profit FLC partners with the Lapeer District Library, the Thumb Area Michigan Works! and many community organizations and school systems. For details, visit www.readlapeer.org. — R.A.
