Our Adult Literacy Program needs GED volunteer tutors asap!

Please get in touch with Rebecca Massey: 828-254-3442, Ext. #202

Our Adult Literacy program teaches reading, writing, and math to adults who read at or below a basic skills level. Our Adult Ed program currently maintains an enrollment of approximately 50 students who work one-on-one with volunteer tutors. All tutors receive training in the proven Orton-Gillingham methodology- a phonics-based reading method - and use the Wilson Reading System curriculum.

Although English is their native language, Adult Literacy students are non-readers who struggle with recognizing individual written words and comprehending a sentence or longer passage. They comprise a diverse group in terms of educational background, socio-economic status, personal goals, and learning styles. Many are challenged by learning disabilities such as dyslexia. They come to us because they want to improve their job prospects, help their children in school, enroll in a GED program, or just feel better about themselves and their ability to cope in today’s world.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to transform lives and communities through the power of literacy. Our vision is a just and equitable community in which literacy is accessible and achievable for all.


Literacy Together (formerly The Literacy Council of Buncombe County) was created in 1986 as a merger of two leading adult literacy organizations - Altrusa of Asheville and the Asheville-Buncombe Literacy Council. Since our beginning 35 years ago, we have continued to grow programming and expand our reach to meet the literacy and English language needs of people of all ages in Buncombe County.
