TLA History

Trident Literacy Association was founded in 1972 by a group of volunteers who used a shoebox of index cards to track students and tutors. Since then it has evolved into a well-respected, leading agency in adult education.

The mission of Trident Literacy Association is to help adults reverse the cycle and impact of generational poverty and illiteracy through the acquisition of vital life skills.

Our holistic approach includes basic literacy, GED-preparation, WorkKeys Career Readiness, English as a Second Language, and basic computer use, as well as comprehensive family literacy, individual advising, and parenting skills.
