Building a life of success through a foundation of literacy…ONE child at a time
Children's Literacy Center (CLC) began as a Junior League project in 1991 and has since evolved into a statewide effort to build a life of success for children through a foundation of literacy. We provide one-to-one tutoring and curriculum materials for disadvantaged youth and their families. Additionally, we recruit and train nearly 600 volunteers each year. Beginning with one location and sixty-two children in 1993, volunteers continue to tutor using the Peak Reader curriculum at more than 13 community sites in Colorado.
"Being able to help a young person learn a life-long skill is so amazing! It is a lot of fun and a great organization!" ~Parker - Tutor, Potter's House of Denver~
"I feel like I am able to make a valuable contribution as a tutor/mentor. Mentors have been so important to my professional development, so I am glad to participate in a program that allows me to do the same for a young member of my community." ~Keegan - Tutor, Potter's House of Denver~
"My son's reading has improved since he has started tutoring with Children's Literacy Center. He is beginning to gain more interest in reading. He especially likes reading comic books." ~Erica - Parent, Harvest Church~
