About Us:

The Charles County Literacy Council, Inc., a not-for-profit organization, provides one-on-one adult literacy tutoring to ensure that all adults have the access to quality education needed to fully realize their potential as individuals, parents, and citizens. All tutoring and books are provided at no charge to our adult learners.

Our History:

In 1964, the Charles County Literacy Council (CCLC) was formed to help tutor illiterate adults of Charles County. In 1987, CCLC incorporated and received non-profit 501(c) 3 status. It remained a small, all volunteer organization until 1988 when it hired a part-time Program Coordinator, an action that helped to significantly increase CCLC tutoring efforts. In order to maintain and grow its efforts, CCLC has received support from the Charles County Government, the United Way as a Partner and through the Combined Federal Campaign, fundraisers, and private donations and grants. Currently, CCLC has one paid part-time staff member, the Program Coordinator.
