We provide FREE private tutoring in reading and math to any adult resident in Carteret County. Our only requirement is that "you have to want our help."

This video "An Open Door" demonstrates the obstacles our students face each day.

We will come to your location and do a presentation on literacy, at no cost to you. If your club, church, non-profit, business, or group wants to know more about the importance of literacy, please contact us by calling 252-808-2020 or email us.


We maintain a lending library, and volunteer storytellers read to the children once a week.


Do you find yourself having problems like those?

If you do call 252-808-2020 for a private appointment.

We also have monthly Student Orientations the third Tuesday of every month from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM.

The Carteret Literacy Council (CLC) is a non-profit (501) C (3) organization founded in 1984. Our mission is to reduce illiteracy in Carteret County by improving the reading, writing and arithmetic skills of young people and adults through the efforts of CLC trained tutors and other volunteers.
