Program Overview

Fill My Cup! Adult Literacy and Adult Basic Education Services is a grassroots non-profit serving residents of the Charlotte and Mecklenburg County communities. We provide small group and one-to-one tutoring services to adults age 16 and over, who want to learn to read, improve their reading and obtain needed pre-GED skills and functional literacy skills.

We also provide Motheread / Fatheread Classes. The Motheread/Fatheread curriculum uses children's books, and adult poems and narratives to teach literacy skills to adults, with an emphasis on developing skills in all four areas of literacy: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

++ Additionally, the lessons help parents understand the importance of reading regularly to their children.
++ Parents not only learn the "why" of reading with their children, but also the "how." ++This nationally recognized instructional model and curriculum addresses a variety of teaching approaches and learning styles, combining individual assignments with small group work, lectures, and discussion.

Mission Statement

Empowering underserved adults in the Greater Charlotte Community to reach their full potential through adult literacy and adult basic education services.
