Literacy Action Corps of Columbia

What We Do

Literacy Action Corps helps functionally illiterate English and non-English speaking adults to develop marketable skills like reading, writing, math, and verbal communication. This benefits them and their children, families, and communities.

Why We're Great

LAC trains volunteers to work one-on-one with adults to improve basic literacy skills and/or learn the English language. Tutor/student relationships enrich both their lives and help students become more self-reliant, productive community members.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Lack of English literacy skills is a big obstacle to success in life and can echo through the generations. LAC helps adults achieve their goals of high school equivalency, better employment, full community participation, and even citizenship.
