After a number of years of inactivity, Southern Arkansas University Tech led the effort to reinvigorate the OCCLC. With a new board, encouragement and support from the Arkansas Literacy Council, the college, and the tireless work of our AmeriCorps service member, the Literacy Council has made an immeasureable impact on Ouachita, Calhoun, and Union counties over the past 14 months. The community has responded well to the call for volunteer tutors, tutoring locations, and activities. Dozens of students are being served in the cause of literacy development that otherwise may not have had the opportunity to improve these skills.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the efforts by our AmeriCorps service member expanding the services of OCCLC and resource building with partners in the cause of literacy in the Council's service area.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing those in need of literacy tutoring reached in our community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

tireless and dedicated workers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of thousands in our communities.

I had a man in my church come to me about 6 weeks ago and let me know that he couldn't read. I then went to Linda Nelson and talked with her about an individual tutor for him. She informed me of their process and let me know that she could make that happen. My church member is now making sure that he wants this service. Thanks to Linda for even making it possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own church.
