Do you need help learning English or with reading and writing? We are here to help you! Many adults struggle with everyday tasks - answering phone calls in English, reading the mail, or applying for jobs. Our individual tutors and group classes can help you reach your goal.

Individual tutoring - socially distanced, outdoors, or online
Group classes - outdoors or online

Student and Volunteer Success Stories
Hello: I am from Brazil and my first language is Portuguese. Without the help of the Lewis & Clark Literacy Council and my wonderful teachers, I may not have been able to adjust and do well in Helena. Learning English has made it possible to get my driver's license, enroll my daughter in school, get an apartment, get a job at Costco, buy a car, establish credit and
getting my citizenship. Better English help me at restaurants, travel, banks, doctor's offices, my work and for talking with my boyfriend. The L&C Literacy Council has changed my life!
2018 marks the start of a new program for the Lewis and Clark Literacy Council. Book Pals are adult volunteers who meet once a week with students at a local Title 1 elementary school to provide before-school reading support to young students. We have 23 volunteers reading with 54 students every week! We are so grateful for the time & energy of these community volunteers, and looking forward to lots of fun reading together.
