The Orange County Literacy Council is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to helping non-English adult speakers improve their ability to speak, read and write English. The Council has been coordinating Literacy and ESL training in roughly the northern half of Orange County California since 1966, and we're the result of a merger between several smaller groups.
The Council itself is a loose collaboration of individual "Centers", each run entirely by volunteers, and classes are always free (though books usually aren't). The Council has no paid staff of any kind. We are associated with Pro Literacy America, the coordinator for volunteer literacy activities in the United States.
Our volunteers performed more than 10,000 hours of volunteer work in the 2005-2006 reporting year - we're very proud of the difference we're making.
