2-1-1 Speaker to Address Valley Regional Adult Education Students

This coming Wednesday a speaker from the 2-1-1 info line will address the students of Valley Regional Adult Education. 2-1-1 is Connecticut’s free information and referral service. Simply by dialing 2-1-1, a toll-free number throughout Connecticut, callers can reach knowledgeable, multilingual staff and get information, referrals or seek help in a crisis. 2-1-1 operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Valley Regional Adult Education hosts a 2-1-1 speaker on a yearly basis.  Students learn about the service from the speaker and the learning continues into the classroom.  Each class has a hands-on lesson in using the system through their website: 2-1-1 Navigator, http://www.211navigator.org/.  The students are given a task to complete using the 2-1-1 website.  In addition 2-1-1 also offers a translation service through their phone service, this service has been used by many of the ESL students. 2-1-1 has not only been very beneficial to our students but also the staff.
