Adult literacy

We offer individualized one-to-one tutoring for adults who wish to learn to read or improve existing reading and writing skills. In addition, we provide resources and assistance to caregivers working with individuals who need help with reading. 

Senior Adults

Wilkes Literacy provides tutors for residents of local nursing homes who wish to improve their reading skills. Our volunteers read to residents in individual and group settings. Volunteers also assist residents with access to reading materials through the public library with “library runs.” 

Children’s Literacy

Summer Educational Enrichment for Kids (SEEK) provides educational and recreational activities for children during the summer months. This program serves children in grades K-5 in Wilkes County.
