Correctional Education Project LEARN
Project LEARN (Literacy Education and Resource Network) established by the Arizona Supreme Court celebrated its 20th year in May, 2007.

In recognition of this important milestone and of the outstanding work the LEARN program does for the juveniles and adults of Arizona, the Arizona Supreme Court State LEARN Advisory Council showed great pride when they initiated a year-long celebration to “Celebrate LEARN at 20”, from May 2006 - May 2007.

In addition to celebrating the past accomplishments of Project LEARN, increase public awareness and the services offered to the community and the publication of The History of Project LEARN were two of the major events of the celebration.

 
Project LEARN (Literacy Education and Resource Network) is a literacy initiative established by the Arizona Supreme Court, Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) in 1987 to address one of the sociological roots of crime and delinquency – the inability to read and write. In recognition of the high correlation between crime and illiteracy, the Court sought to increase educational opportunities for high-risk youth and adults by promoting and supporting the implementation of alternative education programs.
 
LEARN Centers
Since the establishment of the first computer-assisted instructional lab at Catalina High School in Tucson in 1987, the Court implemented computer based instruction in all juvenile detention schools, known as LEARN Labs. While these are not open to the public, there are community LEARN Centers. These community centers work in partnership with probation departments, community organizations, educational institutions, and other state agencies.
