Charles County Literacy Council

The Charles County Literacy Council provides free one-on-one tutoring in reading, basic math, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to our adult students, including those who request help with math and reading comprehension so they can pass the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) and go on to serve our country. Your financial donations ensure that we can continue to provide these much needed services to our community.
