Introduction to ALP-Charlotte

The Augustine Literacy Project-Charlotte works to improve the reading, spelling and writing skills of low income children who struggle with literacy.

We do this by recruiting, training and supporting volunteer tutors who provide free, long-term, one-on-one instruction using research-based methodology.

You will find our tutors in Charlotte-Mecklenburg elementary schools, working primarily with first- through third-graders at Title I schools.

“My Augustine tutor has proved to be the BEST tutor I have ever experienced. I have taught 20 years and I would take her and this program over any other tutoring program I have worked with in my years of teaching. I couldn’t be more thankful for this program and what you do to help students.”
