Going from Reader to Leader

We know that learning works to propel learners into the future, transforming them from readers to leaders. By honing and improving the skills needed for a 21st century employee, like critical thinking, high computer proficiency and in-demand job skills, our graduates can secure their future and experience growth in the workplace.

SBLC learners come to study, but they leave with more than passing grades and a diploma: the ability to put their learning to work for life.

But don’t just take our word for it. Click here to find success stories from SBLC grads and others who say “Learning Works!” You can also find links to scholarship opportunities and other resources available to graduates and alumni here.

As we like to say, “What you learn at SBLC stays with you forever.” Do you agree?

Digital literacy is a priority at SBLC!

That’s why all of our instructors are required to utilize our computer lab as part of their lessons for at least an hour each week.

When our learners are digitally literate they are more attractive to potential employers, or when being considered for promotions in their current careers!

One of our volunteers, Jimmy Wilkins, is a 2006 SBLC graduate. Jimmy is working with learner, Albert Pannell in our computer lab because SBLC knows that making computers part of our routine not only improves our academic skills, but makes SBLC learners well-rounded and competitive in the workforce.

Are you interested in volunteering with us? Right now, SBLC is looking for more people like Jimmy to assist in our computer lab with digital literacy.

Sound like fun? Get in touch with Phena Long, Supportive Services Coordinator, at our main number (410) 625-4215 x107, or email her at plong@southbaltimorelearns.org.
