An unmet need and a substantial waiting list
The Literacy Council of Buncombe County’s biggest current need is additional volunteer tutors for the Augustine Project. This program serves low-income children who read, write, and/or spell below grade level. The current waiting list has more than 50 children seeking tutoring. Tutoring is one-on-one and every new tutor we train will be matched with a student from our waiting list who desperately needs literacy tutoring to catch up with their classmates.
New training model makes it easier to become an Augustine tutor
We have made the training commitment easier, working with current and potential volunteers to restructure the timing, content, and delivery of the volunteer training.
Augustine Project volunteer tutor training will take place Jan. 14-18, 9am-4pm. After training, tutors will spend two hours per week with their student. New tutors can typically be matched with students at schools of their choice.

“The Augustine Project and Mary Fraser (my son’s tutor) have been an answer to our prayers… This program has helped Graham’s reading immensely, and his self esteem has also improved. Our family is truly blessed by this program and by the help that Mary has provided.”Barbara, an Augustine Project student’s mother
