The Literacy Council

On any given day, The Literacy Council is buzzing with activity. Learners meet with their tutors. Students file in before class. The phone rings with many requests. Staff members are busy matching learners with tutors, contacting volunteers and preparing materials for classes.

This is a place that flourishes because of the volunteers who choose to embody the organization’s mission on a daily basis. Empowering people to achieve can take many forms, and The Literacy Council is sure to make achievement individualized. With close to 150 tutors and close to 300 I READ volunteers, The Literacy Council is a place for all who have a heart for the community.
