About us


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 2019 alone, our tutors volunteered more than 9100 hours of their time to promote literacy in our community. 


The Community Literacy Council assists adults in Western Wayne County who have limited English language abilities in developing vital reading, writing, and communication skills to help them participate in the community and reach their potential in life.
