Anne Arundel County Literacy Council is one of the best organizations I have ever volunteered for. First, there is tremendous support for volunteers which begins with an excellent training program for the volunteer. Training is run by very experienced experts in literacy, with varying backgrounds in reading and adult education. Assignment of students to tutors is personalized for maximum benefit to both parties so that matches are optimized for efficacy from the beginning. Because Anne Arundel County Literacy Council enjoys strong support from local organizations both public and private, its activities are well-attended and run smoothly. Anne Arundel County Literacy Council is a great organization because it is so well organized and has a mission that really matters. The impact of enhanced literacy is not only life-changing on an individual level for student and tutor, but also has significant resultant beneficial effects for the society and the economy on a macro level when the student's improved literacy leads directly or indirectly to better employment opportunities and a higher standard of living.
