Program Overview

Currently, one in five Nashville adults reads at the lowest literacy level. Literacy is the foundation for a better life. Adult literacy rates impact every part of Nashville: employment and poverty levels, healthcare costs, K-12 school performance, family and community relationships, and general dependence on systems for support. NALC offers multi-generational independence through literacy.

We offer free one-on-one tutoring for both literacy (reading and writing) and English learners as well as group classes for English learners. We rely on volunteers to provide our tutoring and provide extensive training to ensure quality instruction. We spend a great deal of time working with individuals to match them to tutors or classes that best fit their needs and schedules.

Hours of operation: M-Th 9am-8pm, Fri 9am-3pm
