As an AACLC volunteer and/or supporter, you have provided 350 low-income adults and out-of-school youth with free books, tutoring, and assessments this past year, allowing them to achieve personal goals of jobs, better-paying jobs, GEDs, passing the ASVAB tests, and improving the quality of their lives and those of their families. You are a hero and champion for these students and we salute you!

Much has been achieved this past year and there is so much to celebrate! Please be sure to read the letters of support from the U.S. Army Recruitment Center, the Housing Authority City of Annapolis (HACA), the Chrysalis House for Women, the National External Diploma Program (NEDP), and the Jennifer Rd. Detention Center. They are all thanking you for improving the lives of their clients. Their letters of support are featured elsewhere in our blog, and can be read by enlarging your screen.

Here are a few comments from our partners. “For several years now the AACLC has been an extraordinary partner of the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis…serving the 790 units of residents of the Authority.” “With the help of this Council we are able to bridge the gap and provide young men and women the opportunity they deserve but can’t yet obtain. We are able to provide careers for those who would otherwise live job to job. A foundation for the future. This is made possible due to the great partnership the Council has provided.”

“The partnership between AACLC and the National External Diploma (NEDP) has resulted in something quite beautiful here in Anne Arundel County. Most of the NEDP clients I have worked with have suffered a chronic lack of support when it comes to education…AACLC tutors make it possible for them to experience success.” “To be able to offer your services to nonprofits like the Chrysalis House and to our clients without a fee is truly a gift. I have observed the interaction between your tutors and our clients and it is really special. One of our current clients is receiving your tutoring services with her nine-year-old daughter side-by-side.”

You are incredible!
Warmest regards,
