Please contact us by at 704-605-4366 if you or someone you know needs help improving their literacy skills.


Step 1: Call

The first step is to call Fill My Cup! at (704) 605-4366 to set up the initial interview and fee-based assessment. At this initial meeting, a Fill My Cup! staff person will collect some basic information and discuss each individual's goals and aspirations in learning to read, write, perform basic math, or obtain their GED. Next, the individual will take an assessment that identifies where they need to begin studying to achieve their educational goals.

Step 2: Assessment

Once assessed, the individual will be placed in the appropriate learning setting and given a study plan specific to their needs.

Step 3: Tutorial Opportunities

Upon enrollment, students will share their goals for learning, and will be guided in participating in individual computer assisted lessons, individual and small group tutoring sessions facilitated by a staff person. From this point on, the student, staff, and volunteers will work towards each student's particular needs and goals. At all times during the tutoring process, both student and tutors are supported by Fill My Cup! through resources, regular contact with the Volunteer Coordinator, and through post-assessments.
