Thomas Jefferson Adult and Career Education at PVCC Presents Annual Voices of Adult Learners Program

Charlottesville, Va. – March 3, 2020 – The Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) Thomas Jefferson Adult and Career Education (TJACE) division announces the twenty-fourth annual “Voices of Adult Learners” program, which is part of the Virginia Festival of the Book. The event will be held Thursday, March 19, at the V. Earl Dickinson Building on the PVCC main campus, from 6-7:30 p.m. The event is co-hosted by Literacy Volunteers Charlottesville/Albemarle. A reception and book signing will follow the program. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will receive a free book.

“Voices” is a celebration bringing together adults from literacy, GED and ESL education programs to share their compelling stories. Students enrolled in literacy and adult education programs compose a variety of writings about family, work, education and life changes. This year, TJACE received over 100 entries for the publication.

The work and generosity of many individuals come together to make this valuable program a success. TJACE partners across the community with organizations including Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and the Virginia Festival of the Book to support adult education and literacy.
