Webinars provide you with the opportunity to access relevant, timely education, information and resources without having to leave your office. As the cost of travel continues to rise and the need for more staff to be available throughout the day, the Action Alliance is making a commitment to develop and deliver new webinar-based trainings each year. Internet access is needed to participate in these training sessions.
All webinars take place from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Shortly after registering for the webinar, you will receive a separate email with instructions for accessing the webinar. Webinars are FREE.

Resources for Working with Adult Literacy Learners
Studies show that 1 in 6 adults have low literacy skills, and in all likelihood this understates the problem. Survivors with low literacy skills encounter barriers to accessing services and face difficult challenges when they do receive services. In many cases, it can be difficult to even tell when an adult has low literacy skills and knowing the signs can be very helpful as you work with these survivors. This webinar will explore barriers and provide concrete strategies for addressing them and improving the quality of services as well as provide adult literacy resources.
