The Brunswick County Literacy Council promotes literacy for people in Brunswick County, focusing primarily on adult and young adult learners. The council helps students with reading, writing, math, computers and English-speaking skills, in either a one-on-one or small class confidential setting, by pairing them with volunteers who are carefully trained and matched with each student. Tutoring is free of charge, as is the training for volunteer tutors. In addition, assistance is available with earning a GED, a driver's license and U.S. citizenship. The Literacy Council has impacted the lives of thousands of Brunswick County residents through free tutoring workshops and special projects, such as Holiday Book Share and National Children's Book Week, and the Touch A Life Program, which allows local businesses to sponsor a student. In concert with the Brunswick Family Assistance Agency, the council contributes to the Holiday Basket program with Book Share, a collection of new or almost new books for youth. In addition to tutoring, volunteers are needed for fund-raising, publicity, information technology and other duties.
