Adult Learner Application
Need English help?
The first step is to fill out the Adult Learner Application Form. Manatee Literacy Council services are provided confidentially and free of charge to Manatee County adults regardless of race, creed, color, sex, national origin, or socioeconomic status.
You will need an email address to complete the interest form electronically. If you prefer, you can call the Manatee Literacy Council office at 941-746-8197. Once you submit your interest form and submit your one-time assessment fee of $20, Manatee Literacy Council will contact you shortly to complete the enrollment process. Our services are free for adults residing in Manatee County.
Manatee Literacy Council does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, religion, race, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or any other status protected by law. Individuals will be accommodated to the fullest extent as outlined in the ADA guidelines. Due to limitations of the volunteer-based program, Manatee Literacy Council is unable to serve some individuals who are cognitively disabled or developmentally disabled. Recognizing this policy, there may be individuals who, however willing, are not able to benefit from Manatee Literacy Council tutoring. If in the opinion of the tutor or a staff person and with the concurrence of the Executive Director, such a situation exists, the student will be advised that tutoring or continuing in tutoring is not recommended. If possible, the individual will be referred to another appropriate agency better able to meet his or her needs.
