ABOUT US

The Literacy Council of Alaska was started in 1973 with the same Mission as we have today:
To change lives through literacy for people of all ages in Fairbanks and the Interior!

  • English as a Second Language: We tutor and teach classes at every level for adults learning to speak English. We also provide citizenship classes.
     

  • GED: LCA offers GED classes in reading and writing, math, social studies, and science. We prepare our students to pass the GED test, with nearly 90 graduates a year!
     

  • Pathways: Transitional education for youth ages 16-24. Those working on education are also provided work experience as they prepare to enter the work force.
     

  • After School Program: Year round tutoring and programming for the youth who live in subsidized housing at Birch Park near downtown Fairbanks.
     

  • "LevelUp!" School Age Tutoring: We have started tutoring middle school students who need additional help preparing for high school.
     

  • Book Recycling: Annually we provide 10,000-20,000 books to organizations and individuals across Alaska. This creates a print rich environment and ensures that people have books!
     

  • Forget-Me-Not Books: Our great used bookstore that provides books at great prices and revenue to sustain the programs at LCA.

The friends and partners of LCA make Fairbanks a wonderful place to change lives through literacy. Thank You!
