In partnership with Knox County Schools Adult Education, the Knox County Sheriff’s Department and UT WAVE, Friends of Literacy supports free high school equivalency diploma classes throughout Knox County.

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.
