VCLC’s mission is to enable adults to achieve personal goals and very young children to achieve pre-literacy skills through literacy services provided to families free of charge.


We envision a Valencia County in which all residents have the literacy skills they need to achieve their own dreams.


Valencia County Literacy Council (VCLC) was founded in 1987, and we are now in our 30th year of providing help and hope to Valencia County residents with low literacy levels.  Our national body is ProLiteracy, and we have been fully accredited three times (4-year accreditations). We provide free Volunteer Tutoring for Adults, a Family Literacy Preschool, and BOOK Readers and free children’s
books at local, low-income medical clinics.

Did You Know?  UNESCO estimates that there are more than 774 million nonliterate adults in the world. It sees adult literacy as a basic human right and integral to the solutions for poverty, access to health care, educating children, and human rights abuses.
