Adult Learning Program

The Adult Learning Program at Literacy Mid-South has provided small group and one-on-one education services to adults who read on a 6th-grade level or below for more than thirty years.

How We Teach

Small Learning Groups:

Adult learners on the same grade level work in small learning groups facilitated by volunteer instructors who use innovative, collaborative learning models that make use of real-world examples and allow the students to learn at their own pace.


Individual Tutoring:

Volunteers work one-on-one with adult learners to help them achieve their educational or personal goals like driver's education preparation or credential attainment.

Thank you for deciding to become a part of our team!

We were the people who were not in the papers. 

We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. 

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
