In 1993, the Victoria Advocate launched the Knowledge Bowl to help increase literacy in the Victoria area by supporting the Victoria Adult Literacy Council (VALC). This year’s Knowledge Bowl, presented by the Advocate and the Rotary Clubs of Victoria. Your sponsorship of this event will help the VALC continue its important work!

What is the Victoria Adult Literacy Council all about? The VALC is all about second chances. Our dedicated 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.

It’s a moving experience to see hope in the eyes of those we’ve helped when they talk about getting a better job by improving their English and learning skills.

 

 

Good news! The 20th Annual Jack Whitmire Memorial Charity Sporting Clay Shoot dates have been set. Mark your calendar for April 22-23, 2017 for a great day of gun safety, fine shooting, good food, and fantastic fellowship.
