Basic Literacy & Math for Adults


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


CPCC Central Campus1412 Elizabeth AveCharlotte, NC 28204


Help non-traditional students (ages 18-70) with work that they are completing towards a degree. If you're patient, open to meeting new people, and maintain a "teamwork mentality", you'll do fine. Most students are at a 6th grade or lower level proficiency.

Volunteer Activities:

  • When you arrive at the project site, the Volunteer Leader or the Learning Resource Center staff (a representative from CPCC) will help you find a student to help.
  • Typically you'll either be working on math or reading. The math tends to be multiplication/ division, fractions, decimals, percentages, and area/ volume problems.
  • The reading usually consists of a short story with vocabulary and comprehension questions.

This project takes place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6 pm until 7:30 pm.

Please note all Hands On Charlotte monthly projects require individuals to attend an orientation session, pass a criminal background check and pay a one-time $20 fee.
