About Us

The Corpus Christi Literacy Council first opened its doors in 1986. More than 10,000 students, throughout the Corpus Christi Bay Area and South Texas, have been helped during these 33 years.  We are affiliated with ProLiteracy.

Currently, the Corpus Christi Literacy Council has more than 50 volunteer tutors who serve at several  tutoring sites across Corpus Christi. Volunteers work on a one-to-one basis with students at neutral locations convenient to both the tutor and student.

We are located at the Ben F. McDonald Library (4044 Greenwood Dr., 78416) on the corner of Greenwood Dr. and Horne Rd.

During the school year, we have some evening classes that meet until 8 PM, and occasional training sessions on Saturdays. Our phone number is 361-826-7086, and there is an answering service for after-hours calls.
