CCLC hopes you and your family are staying safe and strong during this unconventional time. This has been a very uncertain time for all of us. With the development of the COVID-19, CCLC has had to cancel all in-person tutoring. Although we had to stop in-person tutoring, we have been exploring new boundaries of virtual distance learning and encouraging and supporting virtual tutoring where possible. The current situation has stirred dedication and resilience from all of our volunteers and students. Because we all know – Literacy Does Matter.

Thank you and welcome to our new tutors from Saturday's workshop -- Jenifer, Monica, Helen and Mary Elizabeth. They truly learned the positive impact they will have in someone's life -- not to mention truly understanding what it means for those who cannot read or "can" read but simply don't understand what they are reading. When someone says to you, can you read this to me, I forgot my glasses, there is the possibility that it truly means: can you read this to me because I can't read it.
Our next workshop will be in the Spring. If you and your organization may be interested in outreach and becoming tutors, we can bring our workshop to you. Just give us a call -- 301-934-6488.
