Mission

Manatee Literacy Council empowers Manatee County residents to independence. We envision a Manatee County where every adult is literate. Literacy is the gatekeeper to education, financial stability, health, relationships, and empowerment. It is the foundation of self-sufficiency and success. 

Programs

1 in 5 Manatee County adults cannot read above a fifth-grade level. Manatee Literacy Council matches learners with volunteer tutors for one-on-one lessons. Services are provided confidentially and free of charge to Manatee County adults regardless of race, creed, color, sex, national origin, or socioeconomic status. 

History

Manatee Literacy Council is a volunteer-based nonprofit community organization dedicated to increasing the level of the functional literacy of adults in Manatee County through teaching the skills of reading, writing, understanding, and speaking English. Manatee Literacy Council has served the community since 1978.
