The Amigos Student Support Group

The Amigos is a group of Literacy Council students, from both the Basic and ESL programs, who get together for information sharing, brainstorming, events, and just plain old fun!

They meet at the Literacy Council office (2855 Annandale Rd.) on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m.

All Literacy Council students are encouraged to join the group. Tutors are welcome to join their students at the meetings.

For more information or to RSVP for an upcoming meeting please contact Deborah Fellows at ext. 109.

Dictionary Project

Through the generosity of individual donors and Modern Publishing in New York, the Literacy Council is able to provide a free copy of the New Concise Webster's Dictionary to each of its students.

Vision Screening Project

A partnership with area optometrists and optical stores allows the Literacy Council to refer income-qualified students for visual screening and optometry services. For more information contact Sharon Donovan at ext. 111.

The Student Special

Published four times a year by the Council's Writers Group, the Student Special is a four page collection of stories, essays, and games written for the adult new reader. Student Specials are available from the Council free of charge.

Students are encouraged to submit their own stories for publication in the Student Special. Stories can be submitted to:
