Welcome to Literacy Action of Central Arkansas
Literacy Action offers a welcoming community for adults and families to improve literacy skills and enhance quality of life. With support from volunteers, donors, partners, and the community at large, Literacy Action invests in Central Arkansas’ greatest asset – our people.
Staff, volunteer instructors, and volunteer tutors build a collaborative learning environment where adult students expand their reading, writing, and speaking skills. The personalized approach allows students to shape the instruction they receive and delivers a balanced curriculum, leading to improved literacy and life skills.
Literacy Action is revolutionizing the way adult literacy education is delivered:
INSTRUCTOR LED: Qualified volunteer instructors teach relevant, responsive, and level-appropriate curriculum for small groups of ESL students in a classroom environment.
TUTOR-DRIVEN: Trained volunteer tutors support the instructors and help meet individual student needs.
STUDENT-CENTERED: Each student identifies academic and personal goals and instructors design lessons to help them meet these goals.
