Dedicated to teaching adults (ages 16 and older) literacy skills using individualized curricula to enhance self-esteem, increase occupational and social opportunities and to enrich lifestyles.
The Literacy Council has many opportunities for literacy tutors. LCUP provides basic literacy for native English speakers needing help with reading and writing skills. We also provide ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) tutoring for those in need of help with speaking, reading and writing English as well as understanding American culture.
Volunteering as a Literacy tutor is a unique and rewarding experience. If you want to make a difference in other people's lives by giving them the gift of literacy, I encourage you to contact the Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas. It's a wonderful organization with a great cause.
