Our Mission Statement

All adult citizens of Marion County should have a resource available to help improve their literacy skills.

Our Vision Statement

To promote the importance of literacy in today’s society and provide a framework for instruction dedicated to improving adult literacy skills throughout Marion County, Florida.

What We Do

Marion County Literacy Council is a group of dedicated volunteers that tutor adult learners. We help adult learners reach their individual learning goals. Our learners are preparing for GED exams, learning to read or write and learn the English language. We provide this service to assist the learner. From one student, one tutor, we have expanded in a few years to more than 400 tutors and students.

Slowly but consistently word has spread that the Literacy Council is the instrument through which anyone with a dream to better himself/ herself can, with hard work, determination and dedication achieve their goal. We have become a permanent fixture in Ocala/Marion County, proud of our achievements and successes – which are a tribute to our dedicated volunteer tutors.

Any adult interested in receiving services can contact MCLC @ (352) 690-7323 to schedule an evaluation. After the evaluation the learner is paired with a tutor and goals and meeting times are set.
