Community Literacy Council featured on WDET

WDET, National Public Radio, featured CLC in a broadcast that focused on how businesses and organizations in Canton were responding to the pandemic. It takes a lot of courage to travel to a new country, learn a new language, navigate a pandemic, and ask for help. Our students are adventurous and brave individuals. And our tutors are Rock Stars!
