The Richardson Adult Literacy Center, the beneficiary of the Buns & Roses Romance Tea, transforms lives by providing free English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction to adults who live or work in Richardson or Richardson ISD area. These adults want to learn or improve their English so they can gain better employment, help their children in school and become more involved community members.
As an accredited Pro Literacy America affiliate, RALC trains volunteer teachers, recruits adult students and places students into classroom or one-to-one instruction.

Look for the teacups hidden throughout our website and roll over them to see a fact about literacy.
