Mission Statement

We are a 501(c)(3) organization that works to promote literacy in South Georgia. Our tax number is 58-1773737. Since 25 percent of the adults in Tift County lack a high school diploma or a GED certificate, South Georgia benefits from the services we offer: basic skills instruction, GED preparation, GED test fee scholarships, and English language classes.

Hours of operation: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and by appointment

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Before my husband, Paul, started the literacy program, he would call me 6 to 8 times a day from work, asking me to help him spell this or that. He would struggle and give up with things, and he wasn't comfortable with anything that required reading. Since he has started receiving tutoring from Literacy Volunteers of Tifton-Tift County, he has gone to only calling me about once a week or even less! My husband is getting more comfortable doing things around people, and at 50 years old, he's proud of himself, and you can tell! He is full of confidence and smiling more than ever. -- Julia Kersey
