Literacy Council of Wake County
Since 1970, the Literacy Council of Wake County (LCWC) has been teaching adults how to read and write better through the use of volunteer, one-on-one tutors. The LCWC also has an English as a Second Language (ESL) program designed for students whose native language is not English. In 2007 the LCWC served more than 600 adults in Wake County. By training tutors and matching them with students the LCWC helped over 350 adults reach their personal literacy goals last year alone. All of our tutoring services are provided free of charge. We are very proud of the fact that 99.9% of our organization is comprised of volunteers.
