AFL Mission

The mission of AFL is to improve the literacy of adults, guiding them towards the milestone of a high school equivalency diploma while also teaching them to advocate for their children’s education.

Our vision is to empower these adults to make strides in not only their education but also improve their opportunities in the workforce.  Just as important, we envision this progress bleeding over on the next generation.  It is our hope that seeing one’s parent value education encourages their children to do the same, thus breaking the cycle of generational poverty.

“Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.”

Maintaining your education, and succeeding in life, is the most important thing you can do. I was a high school drop-out, and never gave it a thought until I grew up, that I couldn’t achieve any goals I had set for myself. I called Ardmore Family Literacy (AFL), and acquired some information, funny part is, it was not even for me. After learning that I could take part as well, I was excited. I could finally reach a milestone, that when I was a teenager, I thought was not a crucial aspect of life. The day classes started, I was nervous but, more so ready to learn. There’s two teachers, who actually work with you, and teach, versus just handing you a book.

The classes are fun, and both Mrs. Chapman and Ms. Etheredge, make everything easy to understand, and easy to remember. Mrs. Leslie Kutz, is the director of Ardmore Family Literacy, and she will do whatever it takes, to help someone who needs their G.E.D. I graduated from AFL on November 14, 2016, and I am currently in college, with a 4.0 GPA. Ardmore Family Literacy has truly become family, even now, they continue to encourage, support, and help me with school work. Ardmore Family Literacy, not only challenged me but, was there for me every step of the way, even when I failed.

Ardmore Family Literacy, will help you on your journey to success. I encourage, anyone and everyone, who does not have their G.E.D., or high school diploma to join Ardmore Family Literacy. They helped me succeed, they will help you too. I also encourage, everyone to donate that can. It is places like Ardmore Family Literacy, that is solely operated on donations. In order to help people, like me, they need your donations. Call Leslie and get involved you will not regret it. I am only one success though, there has been many others.
