The Literacy Council of White County works hard to provide free literacy classes to adults in the community. To achieve our mission, we rely on volunteers. There are several ways to get involved with the work of the Literacy Council. While tutoring is the most direct method of serving, there are many ways to get involved and forward the mission of the Literacy Council. Each is vital for the Council to successfully serve.

Tutors provide direct service to the community by teaching our classes. All of our tutors are certified by our program to teach these classes. Our Adult Basic Literacy tutors can be certified through a workshop or ProLiteracy's online course, "Learning to Use Laubach Way to Reading," and English as a Second Language tutors are certified by an English Forward workshop. All workshops are conducted by our director.
Bookstore volunteers sort donations, shelve books, help customers, and answer questions about the Literacy Council and Second Time Around Books. Our regular bookstore volunteers serve by keeping Second Time Around Books and our offices open in the afternoons and on days when the director is called out of the office. We also have groups volunteer on Saturdays to tackle special projects.
