Mission Statement

Concerned Volunteers Making a Difference. The Fort Meade Literacy Council strives to provide education programs in the Fort Meade community that will enrich, enhance, and advance local people's lives from birth to work.

Description

Established in January 2007, Fort Meade Literacy council offers one on one or small group tutoring for individuals interested developing their reading, and English language skills. We use a diverse curriculum that includes New Reader's Press materials, Laubach books, Phonics, and the Challenger series. The program is free of charge and workbooks are provided to students. Currently, students are enrolled in any of the three programs: Adult Basic Education (ABE), ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), and Online GED - our newest component. Fort Meade Literacy Council's student enrollment,and progress outputs compare favorably with other Polk County literacy council's that have been in existence for quite some time. Beginning in July 2008, we will also launch our Early Literacy component which will target children ages 2 to 5. Its target objective will be to ensure all children in the Fort Meade achieve reading readiness and kindergarten-readiness.
