Who we are
The Clay County Literacy Coalition (CCLC) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that offers one-on-one tutoring to teach adult residents of Clay County to read and speak English.
Our history
CCLC was formed in 1995 when a small group of citizens recognized a need for a literacy program in our community.  Since 1995, CCLC has helped improve the lives of more than 1,700 Clay County residents.

What we do
We train tutors to provide individual instruction for adults from various parts of the world who want to improve their English language skills and basic reading and writing skills.

We also….
Promote literacy through participation in county-wide events, such as the Clay County Agricultural Fair, Orange Park Fall Festival,
and the Way Free Clinic Back-to-School Health Fair.

  • Provide Becoming a Citizen Classes and English Conversation Groups.
  • Partner with Clay County School District Adult and Community Education, Clay County Public Library System, and area churches.

How we do it 
 As a non-profit organization, CCLC provides all services and all materials for both tutors and students at NO cost.  This is made possible through grants, memberships, donations and gifts.  All tutors volunteer their precious time.
