About Northern Nevada Literacy Council
The Northern Nevada Literacy Council (NNLC) was founded in 1978 and incorporated in 1983. We are a 501 (c) 3 community-based non-profit organization dedicated to helping adults learners complete and achieve further goals in education. NNLC provides free classes to adults who want to complete their Certificate of High School Equivalency (HSE, formerly known as the GED), as well as free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, and free Citizenship classes to foreign-born adults.
Last year, 145 NNLC students graduated with their HSE certificates! NNLC exceeds the state by students who enter and retain employment. NNLC also exceeds the state almost three times by how many students transitioned into postsecondary education or training by 100%.
