First National Bank makes donation to English as a Second Language program

The Learning Connection (TLC) helps people build a better life through education by providing free adult and family programs in two locations in Juneau. First National Bank Alaska recently donated $1,852 to the agency for its English as a Second Language and Citizenship classes. Last year, this program served 118 English Language Learners from 35 different countries.

The Learning Connection is a program of SERRC – Alaska’s Educational Resource Center. Along with free English and Citizenship classes, TLC offers free GED preparation and testing, computer classes, family literacy programs, and workforce development programs.
