Anne Arundel County Literacy Council (AACLC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to working with adults and teenagers (not in school) to improve their reading, math, or English skills. I joined AACLC in April 2016 as a volunteer reading tutor. I currently work with a single mother of two school-aged children who wants to improve her reading skills. One of her major goals is to enroll in Anne Arundel Community College. My student is hard-working and committed to achieving her goals. Since we began working together in June 2016, I have seen such an improvement in her reading and comprehension of many reading materials. She has more confidence in herself and is proud of the achievements she has made thus far. Not only has my student benefited from the program, but I get great pleasure in working with her and seeing the improvements. In helping her, I am "giving back," and that makes me feel good. The director, tutor and student coordinators, assessors, and all those involved with AACLC are there for the volunteers with materials, help, answers to questions, suggestions, and whatever the volunteers need to be successful. This organization is critical in helping those in the county who want to improve their reading skills, get their GED's, get better jobs, or enroll in college. I am so fortune to be a part of AACLC.Lois Crawley
My tutor played a huge role in helping me pass the ged and helped me to be able to score in the top 10% of the country. I am very thankful for the help I got from the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council.
I was referred to the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council a little more than 1-year ago. I have found them to be attentive and consistent in their follow-through. We were quite fortunate to have them available to assist our need.
