The mission of CobbWorks Literacy Council (CLC) is to bring together community resources to promote and support adult literacy training in Cobb County.
What is CLC?
Founded in 2001, CLC’s efforts resulted in Cobb’s 2008 designation as a Certified Literate Community by the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education. However, the need to provide quality resources to increase and maintain the literacy levels of our workforce continues.

* Establishing Adult Basic Education and GED preparation throughout Cobb County
* Increasing the availability of a literate, prepared workforce
* Providing dictionaries and thesauruses to underserved students in Title I Schools
* Training volunteers to help support the vast needs of our adult learners
* Offering tutorial services, childcare referrals, transportation assistance and GED scholarships
* Educating Cobb’s residents about the county’s need for literacy services and available resources
* Offering support to existing service providers of adult literacy through training, resources, knowledge, and
