BENEFITING: THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF BUNCOMBE COUNTY
EVENT: 26th Annual Spelling Bee
EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2017
The Literacy Council of Buncombe County has been offering since 1986 programs for: adults who want to improve their reading; schoolkids who need help learning to read; elementary aged kids who don't have books in their homes; and people from other countries who want to improve their English. Literacy and English language proficiency are tools that help people move out of poverty and get better-paying jobs to support their families. Literacy allows parents to read to their children. Improved literacy skills benefit not only the struggling reader, but everyone in our community regardless of age, race, gender, or background.
