OWD’s Adult Literacy Initiative launches new website

Jul 15, 2016

The Boston Adult Literacy Initiative (ALI) recently launched a new website to streamline access to the initiative’s resources. The new website features the initiative’s programming, events, workshops, job opportunities and more.

ALI is a consortium of 29 adult literacy programs throughout the city of Boston that are funded through one or both of the following sources:
The ALI’s member programs provide adult learners with a wide range of services, including basic literacy skills classes, high school equivalency exam preparation, distance learning, job skills training, college preparation, and English language classes for non-native speakers.

Over the last four years ALI has served over 10,000 students, helping to provide educational opportunities that function as a stepping stone toward greater economic stability, a cornerstone value of OWD.

ALI was founded in 1983 by OWD (then known as the Office of Jobs and Community Services). The ALI program partners meet five times a year to share best practices, coordinate efforts, work on professional development, and advocate for the city’s adult literacy ecosystem.

OWD is an affiliate of the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
