Occidental College's Community Literacy Center is a jewel tucked behind Thorne Hall.
In the true spirit of community engagement, each participant grows from the other. Here both Oxy students and local children enrich each other's lives in a warm and welcoming environment.
What's the focus? Creative exploration in language arts. Enrichment at all levels, whether the child is gifted, an English-language learner, or perhaps faces a temporary roadblock in finding a love of reading, writing and creative expression, or all of the above.
Whom do we serve? Kindergarteners through fifth graders, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Sixth through eighth graders on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
How do Oxy students get involved? Enroll in EDUC 140 or EDUC 141 for 2 units, credit/no credit.
Want to enroll a child? Contact the director.
