VISION STATEMENT

Low literacy is a significant handicap for non-readers, and it will become even more disabling in our increasingly technical and digital world.  Left unabated, low literacy will be a dead weight on the social, cultural and economic development of Moore County.  Moreover, the inability to speak and write in English is a major barrier to the assimilation of Moore County residents born in other countries, and their children.

On the other hand, Moore County is a special place, blessed with significant resources.  We have a growing population of volunteers who need opportunities to connect to the community by helping others.  Many are already aware of our problems with low literacy and are eager to help.  Others will support our cause if they are well informed.  Overcoming the fierce competition for grants and charitable dollars will be a continuing challenge.

 
MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to work with others to significantly improve literacy in Moore County in ways that are measurable and immeasurable.  We will maximize the impact of our limited resources by (i) boldly raising the awareness of low literacy in Moore County, (ii) systematically identifying and coordinating the county’s literacy resources, (iii) energetically recruiting and training volunteers, using state of the art literacy resources to provide volunteers with meaningful and life affirming experiences, (iv) nurturing and developing  additional literacy programs and funding resources, and (v) strategically providing literacy counselling and tutoring in our own facilities.

 
LONG-TERM GOAL

Increasing literacy in Moore County to the highest rate in the State of North Carolina.

 
LITERACY IN MOORE COUNTY

One-third of Moore County third-graders are not proficient readers, according to local school data.  Things are even worse for low-income students in Moore County, of whom only half will reach this critical milestone.  Meanwhile, we estimate that more than 7,000 adults in Moore County struggle with low literacy.  Please work with us to address these challenges head-on, transforming Moore County into Read Moore County, leading North Carolina in Literacy.

Thanks for sharing! We are excited for Santa and to celebrate the holidays with everyone.

BECAUSE YOU CARE...
We are able to offer our students music classes, such as drum lessons with our friend William Johnson. Many of our kids are unable to participate in music and arts due to financial strains. We are happy to offer them experiences that, under normal circumstances, they would not be able to enjoy and express themselves. This includes art classes that we have done with Ellen Burke, and we even have a local opera singer coming in to work with the kids!
If you have any talents that you would like to share and work with our youth, please contact Amanda at amanda@moorebuddiesmentoring.com or Katie at katie@moorebuddiesmentoring.com

Francisca has been with her tutor, Jean, since 2017. In her recent reflection piece, she talks about needing to learn English to help her son with his school work and speaking to customers at her business. As she reread her reflection piece, Francisca cried and said, "I'm a business woman now!" Her son Paul joins in on their tutoring session as well!
All of our programs are FREE! If you are interested in giving an hour a week to one of our Literacy programs, please contact Judith at judith@mcliteracy.org for more information.

One of our citizenship students, Patricia, who is originally from the Bahamas, passed all of her tests and the interview process to become a Naturalized US Citizen in May 2022. She has always dreamed of becoming a citizen since moving to the US. She was able to exercise an important right only for US Citizens on November 8, 2022, when she voted for the first time in an election!

This was obviously a major accomplishment!

Victoria's family has taken full advantage of all the CARE Group literacy programs! Victoria was a Motheread student with our Motheread Coordinator, Kathy, where she brought her two boys and their pet rabbit to learn more about the advantages and skills of reading to children at young ages. Through the program, she learned about our Summer Reading Stations and brought the boys to our Ben's Ice Cream stations daily to pick out a book! While attending the Summer Reading Stations, she learned that we offer Adult ESL (English as a Second Language) tutoring sessions. She enrolled shortly after to improve her skills in reading, writing, and communicating in English!
