Mission Statement

The Saline County Literacy Council (SCLC) is a Community-based, non-profit educational organization providing literacy needs for our community. Tutor certified volunteers teach Adult Basic Education (ABE) to individual's needing help in reading, writing, and math instruction, and to English as a Second Language (ESL) student's needing help in learning English. Learning English helps immigrants adapt to a new culture. By providing these services, it will enable individuals to obtain educational levels necessary for employment, job sustainment and promotion, citizenship, to earn a GED or enter Postsecondary education, and other personal achievements.

Description

The Saline County Literacy Council (SCLC) was first formed in 1982. In 1991, we incorporated and became the Saline County Literacy Council, Inc. In 1997, the SCLC lost its director and dissolve under good standing with 105 students. In April of 2007, with the help of the Arkansas Literacy Council, the Saline County Adult Education Center, and a newly formed Board of Directors, the SCLC was re-established. Our Volunteer Certified Tutor's are dedicated to providing one-to-one and small group instruction to Adult Basic Education (ABE) students and English as a Second Language (ESL) student's needing help in reading and writing. Tutor Training workshops are required of our tutors and usually consisted of two consecutive Saturdays for a total of 11 hours of training. Tutoring is usually an 18 month commitment requiring one and half to 3 hours per week of instruction to student.
