Welcome to

Triangle South Literacy Works

Empowering Local Adults Since 1985

TSLW began in 1985 as a grassroots volunteer organization determined to wipe out adult illiteracy in this area. We were incorporated and established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Harnett County Literacy in 1985. After over 35 years, our original mission still drives our board, staff,  volunteers, and even our students. We provide FREE basic adult literacy, financial literacy, English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, citizenship classes, as well as teaching basic computer skills.  Our ultimate goal is to make adult students more educated and employable.

Based on the philosophy of adult literacy pioneer Dr. Frank Laubach, we believe as he did in “each one teach one.” Volunteer tutors are matched one-to-one throughout Harnett, Johnston, and Sampson Counties with individual students at convenient times and locations. 

Mission Statement
Triangle South Literacy Works’ mission is to empower adult learners to improve their quality of life through education and to further develop life skills.
