You Can Achieve It. 

The Literacy Council of Middle Tennessee has helped hundreds of local  children and adults get better grades, earn their diplomas, and ultimately have more career opportunities.


Our Mission

The Literacy Council of Middle Tennessee (LCMT) works with adults and children who need assistance with basic education skills (reading, writing and math). 

The primary goal of the LCMT is to reduce the number of Middle Tennessee adults who do not have
the basic reading and math skills that are increasingly required in today's economic environment.  

LCMT students work with volunteer tutors of varying backgrounds.  Because of the generosity of our volunteer tutors, the LCMT is able to provide our services free of charge.
