Literacy Action Corps of Columbia

What we do:

LAC is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that trains adult literacy tutors and connects them with adults with low English literacy in our community. LAC provides opportunities for these adults to become more self-reliant and productive.

Why we’re great:

Since 1968, LAC has helped adults enhance their quality of life by improving their reading, writing, and speaking. LAC has over 50 active tutor/student pairs. LAC is affiliated with ProLiteracy America, which sponsors programs in 36 countries.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

LAC’s work benefits the whole community by empowering individuals and increasing community involvement. Adult learners gain the skills they need to achieve their life goals and break free from the constraints of low English literacy.
