ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY LITERACY COUNCIL INC
April 15, 2014

The Anne Arundel County Literacy Council provides FREE one-on-one tutoring to adult residents of the county who seek to improve their reading and writing skills. Now celebrating 36 years of service, AACLC has assisted more than 2,000 persons and has trained over 1,000 volunteer tutors and assessors. The demand for the services of AACLC is great and continues to increase. It is estimated that 70,000 adults in Anne Arundel County lack the basic skills needed to obtain a high school diploma or a GED. AACLC has tutors trained in both literacy and English as a Second Language. No other literacy program in Anne Arundel County provides this combination of features to facilitate accessible and individualized instruction to residents who are striving to develop the skills that are essential for success in our society.

To track the success of its program and to demonstrate accountability, AACLC has implemented its first-ever database containing information about tutors and students.

ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY LITERACY COUNCIL INC
April 6, 2013

When I was approached to join the Board of the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council, I checked out the organization carefully. Was I impressed! The achievements of this ALL-VOLUNTEER organization are inspirational. The AACLC provides FREE one-on-one tutoring to adult residents of the county who seek to improve their reading and writing skills. Now celebrating 35 years of service, the AACLC has assisted more than 2,000 persons. In the past year alone, AACLC tutors performed more than 5,000 hours of literacy instruction. No other literacy program in Anne Arundel County can match the personalized help provided by AACLC. In the time that I have served on its Board, I can testify that the enthusiasm for the work of this organization as evidenced by tutors, Board members and especially its program director is contagious. You hear a lot about wanting to make a difference. By empowering people to develop the basic skills that are essential for success in our society, everyone who takes part in the AACLC does just that.
