Celebrating Literacy

by Oct 15, 2020Across the Cape Fear, Nonprofits

Cape Fear Literacy Council celebrated its 35th birthday with a virtual event on October 15.

On October 15 at 6 pm, Cape Fear Literacy Council celebrated its 35th birthday by premiering a video on Facebook Live @cfliteracy and YouTube Live @CapeFearLiteracy. The video included inspiring messages from students, volunteers and staff and an update on The Live Oak Bank Challenge. Live Oak Bank offered to match donations to the Literacy Council, dollar-for-dollar, up to $35,000 in honor of our indispensable nonprofit’s milestone anniversary.

Cape Fear Literacy Council (CFLC) is an independent nonprofit organization that has been serving the Cape Fear region communities for 35 years. Their mission is “to provide personalized education so adults can transform their lives and contribute to a stronger community.”

35 Years Cape Fear Literacy Council NC

CFLC has three programs: Adult Literacy, English as a Second Language (ESL), and, new in 2019, Computers on Wheels (COWs). For each, they offer free assessment and tailored instruction to adults through one-on-one tutoring and small classes. Last year, they helped 574 adults improve their educational skills so they could achieve personal and work-related goals.

The video presentation on October 15 is free, and the public is welcome to join them on Facebook Live or YouTube Live. There will be a short, celebratory Zoom call after the video, which will also be streamed on the Facebook and YouTube platforms.
