About us

The Literacy Council exists to provide literacy instruction to individuals and families to strengthen communities. We do this regardless of means or ability to pay, to improve quality of life for individuals, and to advocate for literacy awareness and services.

At The Literacy Council, we match volunteer tutors with adult students who need help building basic reading skills or with those who speak English as a Second language who desire one-on-one help. While we offer reading, math, and ESL classes for our student body, The Literacy was founded to provide one-on-one reading instruction to those with the greatest need to improve reading skills. To that end, we offer a quality, 16-hour New Tutor Workshop to all of our volunteers to teach them how to tutor. After completion of our workshop, tutors make a year's commitment to tutoring an adult learner.
