 What is this program, and why do we have it?
 
The Education Program promotes the American Legion Auxiliary’s role in providing quality education for children and adults through classroom activities, literacy programs, scholarship promotion and support of education beyond high school, with a special emphasis on children of veterans and servicemembers. The Education Program and the 2014-2019 ALA Centennial Strategic Plan: Through classroom activities, literacy programs, scholarship promotion and support of education beyond high school, ALA members build brand loyalty and awareness of the ALA’s mission (Goal 5) through their education-related community service projects
