Programs we support at Literacy Council of Tyler

Adult Education Services


Programs are offered in 16 locations across 6 counties. We provide classes and tutoring for adult basic literacy, GED preparation, English language services for any adult who needs to learn or improve their English, Career Pathways in partnership with TJC, College Prep, and Family Literacy. Programs are free for participants with the exception of Career Pathways which may involve a small fee.



Mission/Vision: The Literacy Council of Tyler believes that education is powerful and can unlock potential. And, we believe that every adult should have the opportunity for education at any stage of life.  Our educational programs offer the opportunity for transformational results in the lives of adult learners, families and the greater community.


About: The Literacy Council of Tyler (LCOT) began in 1990 as an adult basic literacy program but quickly expanded as we collaborated with other area agencies and partners to provide more adult education services. We now offer Adult Basic Education, GED Prep in English and Spanish, English Language classes, Career Pathways and College Prep. We also have a successful Family Literacy program at the Family Learning Center of Tyler.


Volunteer: Our volunteers serve in many capacities. We have tutors who help students with basic literacy, Math, ESL, and GED preparation. Volunteers help with conversational English for ESL students. Other volunteers help with one of our special events or book programs.


In-Kind Donations: Office supplies (paper), dry erase, spiral notebooks
