Mission: The Literacy Council of Tyler was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization in 1990. Through the use of dedicated staff and an army of volunteer tutors, adults in our community are able to receive help in improving their literacy skills?from beginning reading instruction to GED completion and English as a Second Language instruction. Our services are offered in collaboration with the Tyler Junior College, Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas, Tyler Independent School District, local churches, businesses and industries, and local libraries. All of our services are free to the adult learner. We serve approximately 2,700 adult learners annually.
Results: Annually serve 2,400 students. 78% of students who complete 12 or more hours advance a level. We are meeting 100% of our federal grant performance measures.
Programs: Adult Basic Literacy, GED Preparation, English as a Second Language classees
