Program Description

  Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy

This NDA provides funding for the Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL). MCAEL's mission is to strengthen and build adult English language learning programs and instruction to further individual and family success at work, school, and in the community. Funding for MCAEL supports grants to community organizations for programs that provide adult English classes. Additionally, MCAEL receives operating funding to fully support the network by: providing technical assistance, coordinating new program initiatives, and developing training and networking opportunities for over 60 community organizations and instructors throughout the County. MCAEL convenes the ESOL community, connects with businesses and other organizations, and leverages funding to improve program quality and coordination. MCAEL also provides critical information for the community to educate and engage them about the need for and benefits from adult English classes. The County's contribution is implemented by a contract between the Department of Public Libraries and MCAEL.
