Victoria Adult Literacy Council Hosting Knowledge Bowl 2016

VICTORIA- Here’s a bowl you won’t need your helmet for. Rather, your thinking cap!

The Victoria Adult Literacy Council is hosting the 23rd annual Knowledge Bowl.

The Knowledge Bowl is hosted to help increase literacy in the Victoria area by supporting the Victoria Adult Literacy Council (VALC). The Victoria Adult Literacy Council staff, and volunteer tutors give adults not only a chance to improve their reading and English speaking skills, but also help those adults who need to pass a test for job training, gaining employment, or advancing in their job. Trained staff also works with those who have literacy difficulties because of learning/reading disabilities. This second chance to learn the skills that can most help them improve their lives and those of their families will help break the cycle of inter-generational illiteracy that abounds in our country and area . The Knowledge Bowl Fundraising event will be on: Date: Friday February 19, 2016 Time: 6:00 – 9:00 PM *The deadline for teams to register is Monday, February 15, 2016.
