Did you know that "36 million adults cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third grade level?" According to ProLiteracy, a global leader in the effort to combat illiteracy, this fact and more leave the mind reeling. Today, society is becoming ever more dependent upon literacy skills. We need to know how to read, do basic math, and basic operations on a computer just to perform basic every day tasks. Become a champion for literacy! Volunteer for Twin Lakes Literacy Council and help an adult or child acquire the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.

Like math? Tutor someone struggling with fractions, multiplication, or even algebra.

Love books? Help someone improve their daily life by teaching them to read.

Adept with computers? Teach basic computer usage skills.

Good at English? Help someone from another country learn our language.

You don't need to be a teacher to make a significant impact on another person's life. You just need a good heart and a bit of preparation. Volunteers 17 years of age and up are most welcome!
