About Statement

The Literacy Council of Buncombe County provides comprehensive literacy and English language skills to 350 individuals in Buncombe County annually. The Literacy Council gives opportunities to people who don’t believe they have a second chance to learn. Literacy and English language skills are tools that help people rise out of poverty and get better-paying jobs to support their families. Literacy allows parents to read to their children. Improved literacy skills benefit not only the struggling reader, but everyone in our community regardless of age, race, gender, or background.
