What is USCAL?
The United States Conference on Adult Literacy (USCAL), sponsored by ProLiteracy, is a biennial national conference seeking to forge new partnerships while also providing expert professional development and training opportunities. The conference is for programs and providers from adult literacy and education, family literacy, workforce development, library, corrections, and social service organizations in order to help expand and improve services. The formation of USCAL brings together key partner organizations, allowing conference participants to discuss and create powerful solutions for a variety of issues facing adult literacy—from decreased funding and contingency planning to the increased need for advocacy and social entrepreneurship. | (315) 214-2578 | See you in D.C.!
