The Pickens Certified Literate Community Program, better known as Pickens CLCP, works in partnership with Chattahoochee Technical College. We are a 501(c)(3) organization.
Our nonprofit was created to reduce the functional illiteracy rate in Pickens County. A group of community leaders got together and formed the nonprofit whose mission is to help adults obtain skills which make them more successful and confident in the workplace and in society.
As we work in partnership with Chattahoochee Technical College, our nonprofit raises funds for students’ testing fees, college application fees, graduation fees, and workforce training. 100% of the funds raised through grants and donations go back to the community and the students. The director volunteers and is not paid. There are no operating expenses associated with the nonprofit. We refer interested students to our partner adult education program and support these students by paying for their tests, application fees, and workforce training tuition. We also support the teachers in the classroom by providing software, hardware, and classroom supplies that are not covered in the adult education federal and state grants.
The Pickens CLCP does not believe in duplicating services, which is why we do not offer classes, but rather refer these students to the quality instruction at our partner college.
