Nonprofit Adult Literacy
& Education Center
What We Do
VITA is a nonprofit organization that provides adult learners with the literacy skills to improve their reading, writing, math, and speaking skills to achieve their personal goals.
These goals range from obtaining a high school equivalency diploma, getting a job or promotion, helping their children with homework, or learning the English language. We offer one-on-one tutoring to enhance student progress.
This program prepares the adult learner for the HiSET (High School Equivalency) test. We provide daily classes in all five subjects (Reading, Math, Grammar/Writing, Social Studies, and Science). We also have a distance learning program for students unable to attend in-person classes with the same five subjects available.
The ESL program is for English Language Learners who need to better their skills in reading, writing, and speaking. We provide both daily and evening ESL classes tailored to your level. Our classes range in level from Beginner-Advanced.

Tutor Training Workshop
We offer the Tutor Training Workshop to help interested individuals develop their tutoring skills. During this workshop, participants learn a variety of teaching strategies and techniques that can be applied in class or one-on-one tutoring sessions. This is beneficial to both potential tutors and the academic goals of VITA as a whole. Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to become a top-notch educator!
