Welcome! Read the latest issue of PROGRESS, featuring civics programs in Virginia. Read PROGRESS


The Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center equips the field of adult education with essential skills and resources through an equity mindset.


We collect and disseminate resources for targeted and just-in-time learning in order to help build knowledge and improve practice.



We connect people to programs and networks that build and strengthen adult education’s role as a workforce partner.



We grow professional skills and capacity to improve programs and impact the lives of adult learners—webinars and virtual events, facilitated online courses, self-paced online courses, face-to-face training, and more.
