Literacy Impacts Us All

When adults learn to read, write, or do basic math, their transformations are nothing short of remarkable. They can find and keep jobs, enjoy better health and educate their children. Their new skills enable them to dream big, do more and move forward. And that means society can move forward, too.

We Need Your Help

Our programs depend on volunteers and donations to allow us to touch the lives of countless neighbors across Beaufort County. Your gifts — of time, money and advocacy —  help us deliver the critical programs that empower adults and enrich our community.

Our Events

Sign up now! We’re seeking compassionate and enthusiastic volunteers to tutor adults on Hilton Head Island. Tutors are also needed for a new family literacy program set to begin on the island this fall. Two special tutor information sessions will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, and Wednesday, June 17, at our Hilton Head Island Learning Center at 4 Oak Park Dr. No prior teaching, tutoring experience, or knowledge of another language is necessary – only a desire to make a difference in someone’s life. Both daytime and evening opportunities are available. For more information on becoming a tutor or to sign-up for one of the June tutor sessions, contact Mike Powers at 843.681.6655.
