Why “Learning Works”

The core motivation behind SBLC is to support the desire in each person to learn and excel to the highest points of her or his abilities and potential. Through education, we can customize content to fit the personal, unique needs or professional aspirations of our learners.

What we do best is simple: We make learning work.

In 2016, we chose to rename ourselves “SBLC: Learning Works” as a way to highlight our learners’ accomplishments and the motivation behind our core message. We showcase and celebrate how SBLC functions not only to educate adult learners, but also to empower them to succeed: by securing better jobs, enhancing their life skills and personal lives, and contributing to their community.

At SBLC, we believe that learning works to forge a pathway to success. That success can take on many forms, in many ways, at any time. No matter the need, SBLC has something to offer. Wherever life for our learners may have started, and whatever its destination, we encourage you to support them and continue the journey with us.

Please explore our website to tap into and reveal the knowledge, capabilities, and skills that exist among our community of learners. Discover the many ways that learning works at SBLC and help us ensure that learning works for adult learners in Baltimore City and surrounding areas by​ becoming a volunteer or making a donation today.

As allies in education, teachers better equip students with the tools to build and open doors to brighter futures. To all Maryland adult literacy instructors, we appreciate all that you do.
