Project Learn

Project Learn is Greater Cleveland’s premier adult education center, and it has acquired a national reputation for its leadership in advancing literacy. Our mission is “Literacy for Every Adult,” and our purpose is to provide basic skills, GED preparation and job support services to adults so that they may attain self-sufficiency and independence.  We believe that Learning Lasts Forever.

Education is freedom: when students acquire basic skills, a GED, and a job they become self-sufficient, they can solve the problems of daily living, they take full advantage of their citizenship and participate fully in the affairs of their community.

At the inception of Project Learn in 1974, few people realized the extent of adult illiteracy. But in its formative years – because of the inspirational leadership of founding director Nancy Oakley, the tremendous dedication of so many volunteers and the persistent courage of adults who were learning to read – Project Learn gained momentum and word of its work spread throughout the community.  What began as a small reading project soon evolved into a multi-dimensional adult education program. Over time, Project Learn added English for Speakers of Other Languages tutoring; pre-GED classes; workplace skills training for manufacturing employees; classes for corrections inmates; comprehensive library services designed especially for new readers; computer-assisted learning instruction; and small group teaching.  All of these new programs came about with one fundamental aim – to provide basic level students with whatever they needed to realize their goals.  Adherence to this principle has paid off: in thirty-seven years, over 20,000 adults have improved their skills at Project Learn.
