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.

Barriers Adult Literacy Learners Face and How to Help Them Overcome Them?
America’s hidden secret is the perfect storm of illiteracy, unemployment and poverty. For the 20% of adults in our population who read at the 5th grade level or below, navigating through today’s complex world provides a daily challenge. Pockets of illiteracy and poverty exist everywhere: in rich suburban environments, inner cities, and rural areas. In Virginia’s rural horseshoe (which ranges from the far northwest, to the south west and south side, and up the eastern shore, and represents seventy five per cent of the Commonwealth’s geography), a half million people have less than a high school education. This webinar presents the facts of illiteracy and the resources available to adults to help them become better educated and more productive in their personal and work lives.
