During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
The mission of the Cobb Literacy Council: Develops and promotes resources to increase literacy in the community and workplace.
Our volunteer program is designed to address the needs of adult basic education in the subject areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.
Students receiving help from the volunteers are attempting to raise their grade levels to 8.0 so that they can eventually move into a GED preparation class and take their GED exam.
Unfortunately, many students coming to our GED program are not prepared for the level of work found within a GED curriculum. That's why volunteers make the difference by working with students from second grade level up to fifth and sixth grade levels ultimately increasing their ability to merge into the GED classes and take the GED test.
