About Us

The Dartmouth Learning Network provides opportunities for adults and their families to gain the essential skills necessary to live and work in a modern economy. Our vision is one where everyone has the skills they need to achieve their learning and career goals.

We provide free classes and one-to-one tutoring to adults who recognize literacy and learning as a vehicle to improve their life circumstances and those of their children.
