40+ Years of Free Literacy Programming

The South Shore Literacy Council has been providing non-profit literacy services since 1980. 
In those 40+ years, we have championed literacy tutoring, activities tailored for intellectually disabled adults, 

a weekly pre-literacy music program for young families, and inclusive programming for seniors.
