History

The Community Literacy Council, Inc. was founded in 1985 in partnership with the Plymouth-Canton Community School District.  We are a volunteer, non-profit organization aiming to improve adult literacy in Plymouth-Canton and surrounding areas of Western Wayne County. We provide free literacy tutoring to adults via one-on-one instruction or small conversation groups.   Our tutors undergo 12 hours of training and customize each of their lessons to the individual needs of their students.   In 2015 alone, our tutors volunteered more than 5000 hours of their time to promote literacy in our community. 

Mission

Our mission is to provide adults with basic reading, writing and communication skills so that they may participate in their community and reach their fullest potential in life.
