The Literacy Council of Norristown (LCN) is a non-profit organization that can help adults improve their reading, writing, and math skills. We also offer help with English as a foreign language. English literacy skills are important in finding or keeping a job, helping your children with their schoolwork, or seeking further education.

The Literacy Council of Norristown welcomed volunteers, teachers, tutors, and students from twenty countries to their Annual International Dinner on Wednesday, November 14 at the First Presbyterian Church on Dekalb Street in Norristown. Attendees brought dishes native to their countries to share as part of the English as a Second Language classes and tutoring programs at the Literacy Council.
Our vision is to help create a community with an increased level of English literacy, and an organization enthusiastically called upon to provide English literacy improvement services without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
Our mission is to empower those adults who seek to improve their reading, writing, and math skills, or who are learning English as a foreign language. Through a network of local volunteers, we provide one-on-one tutoring or small group classes at little or no cost to students in need.
