About Us

"Building a life of success through a foundation of literacy, ONE child at a time” is not only Children’s Literacy Center’s (CLC)  mission, but it is a statement  that represents the celebrated results we have achieved since first opening in 1992. Established by the Junior League of Colorado Springs, CLC utilizes the Peak Reader curricula to provide free one-to-one tutoring for children reading below grade level.  Approximately, thirty percent of the third-grade students in Colorado, fail to meet state reading standards. This translates to thousands of children becoming at-risk of not succeeding in school. The Children’s Literacy Center’s program works with families and the community, providing an effective literacy program that minimizes the gap between success and failure.
