About Us

 We are the Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center (RGVLC)

a 501 (c)(3) non-profit community based organization that offers adult education classes to people who need help achieving their educational and career goals.

   Our Mission   

The Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center provides economic opportunities by empowering our communities through adult education and literacy.




Pharr Literacy Project was founded in response to the ESL and GED educational needs for the residents of the City of Pharr.



Pharr Literacy Project became known in the neighboring cities, and at that time only 40% of the students were from the City of Pharr.



Pharr Literacy Project officially became the Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center (RGVLC), still a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization.



RGVLC became a Member of ProLiteracy, an international non-profit organization that promotes Adult Education and Literacy.



The Center offers classes in Alton, Pharr, McAllen, San Juan, Progreso, Penitas, Edinburg, Weslaco, Mercedes, Rio Hondo, Mission, Palmview, Donna, Edcouch, and Elsa.
