Friends of Literacy has a long history of both supporting and providing free high school equivalency classes through partnership with state-sponsored programs. 

Our support to these programs includes donations to help pay for teacher salaries and supplies, recruitment and placement of students into appropriate programs, GED / HiSET scholarships for students unable to afford the testing fees, and recruitment and training of volunteers who assist students.  

To learn more about our program partners or to enroll in classes, please contact us at 865-549-7007 or by email at

Thank you to the East Tennessee Foundation's Literacy Endowment Fund for their support of our Adult Reading Program!
