About Us Charles County Literacy


CCLC tutors and volunteers are the backbone of the organization.  We are always looking for new tutors to meet the literacy needs of Charles County.  If you can read, you can become a tutor!  If you would like to become a tutor you must:

    • Be at least 18 years old and speak fluent English.
    • Attend the tutor training workshop and complete ‘homework’ beforehand.
    • Make a one year commitment to tutor, and plan to devote two hours per week to prep and tutor.
    • Have the desire to help someone you’ve never met, be flexible, reliable, and enthusiastic.

Generally, tutor training workshops are held three to four times a year. 

Workshops are held in two sessions–one virtual from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on a Thursday; second in person on following Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. There is mandatory ‘homework’ to be done beforehand. Pre-registration is required. There is a $30 workshop fee that helps defray the cost of all training materials (we can offer a ‘workshop scholarship’ if needed.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please CONTACT US.
