My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Anne Arundel County Literacy Council, Inc., Annapolis, MD, USA
I have volunteered in several capacities (mostly as an assessor) for the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council over the past eight years. The AACLC has been a valuable community resource since 1977, but it continues to grow and serve the community more with every passing year.
Trained volunteer tutors provide individualized reading, writing, math, and English lessons to our students, most of whom are low-income adults. Even the books are provided free of charge.
Our students are absolutely inspirational; many have gone on to meet their goals, including earning a diploma, obtaining a better job, becoming a citizen, etc. Our students often demonstrate perseverance and dedication that puts me to shame!
It is an honor and a privilege to work with the dedicated staff and volunteers of the Literacy Council.
