Literacy Matters 2

LITERACY MATTERS –  Fact No. 2. Did you know….Individuals at the lowest literacy and numeracy levels have a higher rate of unemployment and earn lower wages than the national average. Low literacy costs the U.S. at least $225 billion each year in non-productivity in the workforce, crime, and loss of tax revenue due to unemployment.*  With one hour once a week, CCLC and its tutors work to reduce those numbers here in Charles County.  You can too!  SIGN UP FOR OUR FEBRUARY 29 WORKSHOP.  Learn about this rewarding experience and of the impact YOU can make on one person’s life.  (Pre-registration is a must.). LITERACY DOES MATTER.
