Manatee Literacy Council Programs


Who can be in the program?

Adults 18 years of age and older can enroll. You must have a regular schedule when you’re available to meet with a tutor and you must have phone or regular access to a telephone so you and your tutor can stay in touch.

How much does it cost to be in the program?

The program is free but you are expected to pay for your books ($30 - $50).

How long will it take to get a tutor?

It may take as much as two or three months to find a tutor. A class may be available while you wait.

Do I have to take a written test to be in the program?

You are required to have an assessment of your current literacy skills, including an evaluation of your reading and writing as well as speaking English. This helps us match you with an appropriate tutor and find the correct books to help you learn.
