Become Inspired! Learn More About The Literacy Council
The issue of illiteracy is one that affects us all. In Frederick County, 1 in 10 or 17,000 adults are functionally illiterate and cannot read a newspaper or fill out a job application. Since 1963, the Literacy Council has been assisting both American and foreign-born adults in attaining basic reading, writing and English-speaking skills with our free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring services – resulting in lives of greater productivity and communities with a higher quality of life.
Learn about the work of the Literacy Council and how you can make a difference in the lives of fellow residents by watching our new video. We believe you’ll be surprised and moved by what you learn.
