Certified Literate Community Program

Communities In Schools Milledgeville-Baldwin County (CISMBC) and Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) are working together in Baldwin County to provide opportunities for local individuals to obtain the skills they need to lead more rewarding and fulfilling lives.  In turn, these individuals benefit the Baldwin County community as they become more successful and responsible in their roles as employees, parents, neighbors and citizens.

CISMBC is included in the Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP) and is currently leading the charge in literacy efforts in the Milledgeville/Baldwin community.  The mission of the CISMBC Certified Literate Community Program is to provide resources for Baldwin County citizens to ensure literacy; “an individual’s ability to read, write, speak in English, compute, and solve problems at the levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family, and in society”.   (~Workforce Investment Act of 1998, Section 203)  The CLCP will ensure Milledgeville will be able to attract new businesses that are seeking a motivated, dependable and capable pool of prospective employees.
