Literacy Together recruits tutors to support 6th- 8th graders in either reading or math (the tutor chooses their subject) two hours a week. Tutoring will occur twice weekly at a YMCA after-school program at Enka Intermediate School. Tutoring may be 1-on-1 or in small groups (tutors choose their format). Tutors must complete 4-5 hours of online training before they begin. Tutoring starts mid-October 2023. Please get in touch with Linda Murphey if you're interested! Linda@lit-together.org

Testimonials from people who participated in the orientation meetings:

"I loved the stories that were shared of how volunteers enhanced the lives of adults and children through tutoring. I am excited to contribute to developing children’s literary skills, as I am passionate about literature. ~ Lauren

"I was surprised to learn about the number of people in Buncombe County who cannot read." Carol "I was surprised by many of the statistics about literacy rates and had not considered just how strongly literacy is linked to poverty and family history. All the more eager to help!" ~Karen "The statistics shown were very important, especially about gaps in literacy levels between black and white students." ~ Nadia " I did not know that you could volunteer internationally. That is great!" ~ Eric

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.
