Gift of Literacy
More than 19,000 adults in Craven, Jones and Pamlico counties read below a third grade level. When individuals learn to read, write, do basic math and use computers, they are more likely to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to lower health care costs, and find and keep sustainable employment. Our mission is building literacy skills to empower adults and improve lives.
Your tax-deductible gift purchases student and tutor materials, tutor training supplies, technology supplies, and tutoring space so that Craven Literacy Council can improve adult literacy by providing free, individualized instructional services to adults in Craven, Jones and Pamlico counties.
