About Literacy Council of Union County

Adult Basic English and English as a Second Language

Our Mission

The mission of the Literacy Council of Union County is to provide free instruction, through trained volunteer tutors for adults in Union County who lack basic reading, writing, mathematics, and English as a second language skills.

Our Goal

The goal of the Literacy Council is to reach those individuals, in need of our services, and in turn, impact not only them but also their families and their community.


The Literacy Council of Union County has three part-time employees. Dara Stanfill serves as the director of the council, Cheryl Splawn serves as the administrative assistant, and Carolyn Wilson serves as the literacy facilitator.

How You Can Volunteer

Volunteers will need to attend one training session and are encouraged to shadow another tutor and student. Call our office for more information.
