Introduction to ALP-Charlotte

The Augustine Literacy Project-Charlotte works to improve the reading, writing, and spelling skills of young, aspiring readers in under-resourced communities by providing free, long-term, one-on-one instruction from highly trained tutors.

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.”
