The South Baltimore Learning Center is
a community based nonprofit organization dedicated to
improving the self-sufficiency of educationally
disadvantaged adults. At the Center and off-site,
adult learners can attend classes in Adult Basic
Education (ABE), Pre-GED and GED instruction, or — for
beginning readers — weekly one-to-one tutoring sessions.
SBLC also provides computer classes, career counseling,
and academic counseling, as well as an opportunity to
earn a high school diploma through the External Diploma
Program (EDP). SBLC is the sole authorized provider of
the EDP program for Baltimore City.
SBLC provides services to more than
1300 learners each year. In 2010, 73 SBLC
learners earned their high school diplomas, our best
year ever. Our success rate — the success of our
learners — continues to grow!
SBLC programs are partially supported
by grant funding from Maryland Literacy Works and U.S.
Department of Education.
