In addition to programs serving adult education students, ACE is home to the Region 1 Regional Training Council (RTC) and the Panhandle Adult Literacy Center (PALC). The Region I Training Council was created to meet the professional development needs of practitioners working with adult education students in the fifteen counties of Region I, the Panhandle of Florida. These providers include school districts, community colleges, volunteer literacy programs, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and correctional facilities. PALC provides support services to literacy providers, including volunteers, in the Panhandle. The Center works with adult education programs, public libraries, volunteer organizations, and other literacy providers throughout the Panhandle offering a variety of technical assistance and training. Both of these services are funded through grants from the Florida Department of Education, Division of Workforce Education.
Volunteers are an essential part of ACE programs and are needed throughout the year. Business partners are needed to support programs in many aspects including serving as guest speakers and assisting students with employability skills. Anyone interested in becoming an ACE volunteer or business partner, please call 850-922-5343.
