Mission Statement

Huntington County Literacy Coalition

Our mission is to help residents of Huntington County to acquire basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and computation and to promote public awareness of adult and family literacy needs and programs in our area. We will accomplish these goals by supporting the work of volunteer tutors and paid adult literacy program staff, and working closely with other community organizations.

The Huntington County Literacy Coalition is a not-for-profit organization helping Huntington County residents acquire the basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and computation, and promoting awareness of public literacy needs and programs in the area.

We offer FREE one-on-one tutoring to any Huntington County resident (adult or child) who would like to improve basic reading, writing, and math skills, prepare for the TASC (formerly the GED) test, develop basic workforce literacy skills, or learn to speak English. Or any goal the student has in mind!

All of our services are free and confidential!
