Newland Learning Center

The Newland Center is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that is dedicated to providing free adult literacy services to our Syracuse inner-city neighborhoods. What makes us different from other local literacy centers, is that the Newland Center has a more “home-like” atmosphere since it is located in a house and students are expected to feel welcomed and learn comfortably.
