About MARC

The Montcalm Area Reading Council (MARC), through dedicated volunteers, community partners and resources, provides free literacy education to benefit the greater Montcalm County area. Since 1986, MARC has helped people improve their literacy skills and learn English. Through customized, individual tutoring, MARC learners acquire critical skills needed to become more confident and self-sufficient. Volunteer tutors work with learners to reach achievable life goals:

  • Get a driver’s license
  • Read mail, recipes, or prescriptions
  • Find or keep a job
  • Vote
  • Read to children
  • Pursue continued education


MARC will advance literacy and empower our community through free tutoring, one learner at a time.
