Career Development and Planning
The Career Coach helps students with career path assessments, resume writing, career exploration and planning for their vocational futures. Additionally, the Career Coach works alongside students to develop and revise college and career plans, college admission process, and financial aid information and applications. In the process, students will connect with career exploration opportunities within their community, make progress towards a secondary certification, and gain work based learning experiences.
Employability Skill classes are also offered for those students seeking to transition to the workforce or for those seeking to improve their soft skills for future employment. Resume Writing, Interview Skills, and Time Management are examples of the content of these courses as students apply their reading and writing skills in the workforce. Similarly, a weekly Job Club is presented to students who are in the process of applying for careers as a way for students to meet, discuss, and improve their employability skills.

Crittenden County Literacy Council
Adult Learning Alliance of Arkansas is the statewide non-profit that provides structure and support to county-level literacy councils serving adults in over 50 Arkansas counties. These councils offer instructional tutoring to adults who want to learn to read, write or speak English better. All services are free.
Adult Learning Alliance of Arkansas was founded in 1971 as a statewide non-profit organization to provide a network of training, professional development, and other forms of support to the growing number of literacy councils in the state.
In 1991, the Arkansas Legislature recognized the valuable contribution of the work of volunteers in adult literacy by granting it state funding. This funding supports a staff and a state office, and the remaining funds are sub-granted to community based literacy councils.
Adult Learning Alliance of Arkansas also operates an AmeriCorps program, Arkansas Reads, which places service volunteers at literacy councils throughout the state. These members provide tutoring and recruit volunteer tutors and students in order to promote sustainability within literacy councils after their service term has expired.
