South Baldwin Literacy Council
The South Baldwin Literacy Council has provided literacy instruction to more than 1,100 individuals to date.
Like our volunteers, our students are from all walks of life, and many are referred to us by other community agencies, by their employers and by friends. Some want to learn to read and write, others want to improve their skills. Some students are from other countries, and want to learn English. Still others want to work on very specific goals, such as learning to read the Bible, or obtaining an Alabama driver’s license, or passing the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.
Each student’s goals are taken into consideration and each is evaluated in order to place him or her in an appropriate curriculum. A tutor is assigned to each student, and SBLC assists the student/tutor team in finding an appropriate place to meet.
Both tutors and students have access to an extensive library of materials and add to it often.
Tutoring can be done at the SBLC office, at area public libraries or agencies. All tutoring is provided free of charge.
