ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

In 1968, community volunteers created the Greater Columbia Literacy Council with a budget of $50 to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to adults who cannot read. We have recruited and trained over 3,000 tutors since our founding. We now offer a full range of learner-led instructional programs. Small-group, computer-assisted, and individual tutoring emphasize life skills as well as reading fluency and English language acquisition. Turning Pages has served 6,000 adults since its creation.


INTRODUCTION TO THE PROGRAM

Greater Columbia Literacy, also known as Turning Pages, offers one-on-one and small group tutoring sessions to adults of all ages. The majority of our learners are working toward reading, math and writing improvement. Our volunteer tutors meet with their learner-participants in our learning center at 2062 Beltline Boulevard in midtown Columbia and in many other sites across the two-county area, to include the Richland County Library branches and various church facilities.


GOALS OF THE PROGRAM

Our goal is to assist individuals to reach their full potential by helping them improve their proficiency in reading, math, computer-use and the English language.
