Literacy Council of Buncombe County

Who We Are

The mission of the Literacy Council is to increase comprehensive literacy and English language skills through specialized instruction by trained tutors.


What We Do

We believe that literacy changes lives for the better. In fact, we know it. Literacy and English language proficiency are tools that help people rise out of poverty and get better-paying jobs to support their families. Literacy allow parents to read to their children. Improved literacy skills benefit not only the struggling reader, but everyone in our community. We offer our students personal instruction and top rate materials. As a result, we improve our community, our economy and individual lives. We serve students in three core programs: Adult Education, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and the Augustine Project®.
