Our Mission


Embracing cultural differences and demonstrating academic, social, and individual cooperation.

The purpose of Routes to Knowledge (R2K) Adult Learning Center (ALC) is to reach out to adults, 17 years and older, who are seeking to re-enter the academic community and or workforce. We offer classes and workshops to enhance the individual’s academic and employ-ability skills. We work to involve each member of the learner’s family through academic tutoring and community events. We use instructional and social curriculum tools to help build the adult learners knowledge and skills to improve their potential, as well as encourage building of personal, family and community commitment.
Routes to Knowledge’s ALC will offer workshops to assist young adults on how to integrate their new knowledge into their work experience and community. We are hands on facilitators and will share and embrace cultural differences while demonstrating the value of academic, social, and individual cooperation. Cultural and social interaction is key to R2K support of diverse learners. Facilitators at Routes to Knowledge ALC’s curriculum focus on practical and social application of skills and knowledge. Learners at Routes to Knowledge ALC program will understand they have support every step of the way in their new learning community, as well as their living community. To increase opportunity for family growth we will include tutoring for elementary age children simultaneously as parents sessions.
Routes to Knowledge’s Adult Learning Center recognized that today’s adult learners are not traditional, are from many cultures, and are members of a disjointed community due to different societal demands and struggles. The curriculum will be built around the basic needs of young adults that have not been able to complete traditional high school. An advance curriculum will be used to assist learners seeking to enter college or advance in the work place. Our learners will be accessed by well trained Knowledge Skills coaches. The Knowledge Skills’ coach role is to gain insight into the learner’s goals and help the learner map a plan of success. Through academic evaluations our facilitators will meet one-on-one with the future learner and help develop the right instructional pattern.
Routes to Knowledge’s Learning Center Workshops are collaborative to increase leaners skills and understanding of the needs of societal workforce. Learners will learn the advantage of collaboration and co-operation as part of social interaction. The workshops include understanding the interview process through role play, preparing quality resumes, and application completion.
