CCLC Interview



For over half a century, the Charles County Literacy Council has been providing free one-on-one tutoring to adults who need to improve their reading, math or English skills.Over the years, we’ve helped grandparents read to their grandchildren, working adults get jobs or advance in their careers, immigrants gain citizenship, and young people join the military service.Unfortunately, many adult learners are now on a waiting list because we need more tutors. No one needs prior experience tutoring or teaching: CCLC prepares tutors  and offers support as they work with their adult learners. As readers you know the power of reading and writing to change lives; as citizens of Charles County, be part of that change. To learn more about CCLC or to register for an upcoming tutor training session, call the office at 301-934-6488 or go to the website www.charlescountyliteracy.org.  Watch this short, informative video interview and learn more.
