Welcome to Tri-County Literacy of Maine Head Start, children reading programs, United Way, reading and writing tutors, family and adult literacy programs and workshops, serving mid-coast Maine.Get Involved

There’s a way for everyone to get involved.  Donate securely online, volunteer as a tutor, spread awareness by participating in one of our annual events, or even come work for us.  You can make a real difference for our communities.  They depend upon your support.

Thank you!



Our Literacy Volunteers tutors come from all walks of life.  Tutors do not need to have a background in teaching, education, or literacy.  We provide training workshops to cover the basic theories, techniques, exercises, and resources we have found to be the most successful for both our students and their tutors.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways you can contribute to the work of Tri-County Literacy, even if you do not want to become a tutor.  We often need assistance in the office with mailings, publicity, and technology implementation. We also need volunteers to help during fundraisers and other events.  This can range from being an events coordinator to helping set up tables or distribute flyers.  There is even the possibility of doing some volunteer work preparing grants, writing appeals letters, and building relationships with potential contributors in the community.  By helping Tri-County Literacy, you can not only help people in your community, you can also gain valuable skills and add to your resume. Please contact the office for more information. We’d love to hear from you.

Welcome to the Candy Cane Train

Annual Fundraisers

The Candy Cane Train: Every December, Tri-County Literacy hosts the Candy Cane Train, a two-day event where young children and adults kick-off the Christmas season!  This year the Candy Cane Train will ride from Brunswick to Portland, with Santa’s elves on board, cookies and hot chocolate to enjoy, and a visit with Santa Claus himself!  All proceeds support our two programs: Literacy Volunteers and Read With Me. Funding from Amtrak Downeaster, and many other contributors, as well as numerous dedicated volunteers, make this event a huge success year after year.
