What we do
It is the mission of Augustine Literacy Project-Brevard to help improve the reading, writing, and spelling abilities of low-income students who struggle with literacy skills. The project trains and supports volunteer tutors who provide free, long-term, 1:1 instruction using the Orton-Gillingham approach and Wilson Reading System® materials.
“Because Augustine Literacy Project’s mission is to provide free reading tutoring for low-income students, some of our most vulnerable students have the chance to receive one:one tutoring that might not be otherwise affordable to their families and to have an extra voice in their lives cheering them on to success.”
- Brevard Academy, Volunteer Coordinator
“Augustine Literacy Project-Brevard tutors use Orton-Gillingham techniques to instruct struggling students within our elementary school as well as the other elementary schools in our county. TC Henderson students continue to make great strides through the diligent efforts of the tutors working one:one with our most struggling students.”
-TC Henderson, School Principal
“Not only do the tutors teach the curriculum provided in their materials and play a huge part in moving our students along academically, but they have also formed relationships that many of these children have not been lucky enough to have before. They truly care about our kids and for that, we are forever grateful!”
- Rosman Elementary Instructional Coach
