Help build stronger communities by referring adult learners to our Learning Center or to any of our parenting program host sites across Central Texas


Learning Center

Our Learning Center (formerly known as the Ascend Center for Learning) welcomes individuals who are interested in improving their literacy skills, prepare for the GED exam or engage in their own professional development.


Parenting Program

We operate an evidence-based parent education program—Play and Learning Strategies (PALS)—in more than ten area nonprofits and high-need schools. The program is designed to develop social emotional, cognitive and language development in preschool-age children in neighborhoods where school-readiness rates are low.
