October 5, 2018—Aberg Center for Literacy is honored to be working with the Mexican Consulate of Dallas and the Mexican National Institute for Adult Education (INEA) in providing adult basic education courses in Spanish to adults of Mexican descent. INEA will provide educational materials and training resources to Aberg Center. With their support, Aberg Center offers free adult educational services that enables adults to validate both elementary and junior high school education levels in Mexico. Students then continue their educational paths by preparing for high school equivalency in the U.S. by taking the GED, Hi Set or TASC assessment.
On August 30, 2018, Aberg Center officially signed an agreement with the Mexican Consulate that will mark the Center as a Plaza Comunitaria and streamline student testing and placement into the Spanish education program. The agreement was signed by General Consul Francisco de la Torre Galindo and Aberg Center Executive Director Shana Harrison.
Today, 36 million adults in the U.S. struggle to read, write and do math. However, Aberg Center is alleviating illiteracy and breaking the cycle of poverty, student by student.
