Thanks to the area military recruiters, the Adult Literacy Council (ALC) has effectively registered 15 adult learners engrossed in attending its new Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Tutoring Program. On Tuesday, September 27th the ALC hosted an orientation for the first class where Director Velma Jo Williams introduced Tutor Amanda Brady who gave specific details regarding classroom instructions.
The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students. The ALC’s ASVAB Tutoring Program is a 10 week tutoring course which will be offered quarterly, with a 4 week refresher course available during the summer.
The program is only offered to potential soldiers who have met with their recruiter prior to applying for tutoring assistance and who have been referred to Adult Literacy Council after having under-gone evaluation and interview at their local recruiting office.
The next registration weeks will begin January 2-13, 2012. An orientation will kickoff the winter ASVAB tutoring program with a ‘bang’ as fall 2011 has!
The Adult Literacy Council wishes to give a very heartfelt thank you to the Officer’s Spouses’ Club at Fort Campbell for their donation of $450.00 which has provided the ASVAB books that will be used by students during each class.
