TTC works closely with virtually every elementary, middle and high school in Bennington County by providing professional staff, dedicated school liaisons, up-to-date resources, a motivational environment, flexible and reliable scheduling,  and “outside of the box” student-centered personalized instruction.

TTC personnel are often members of school Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams and area teachers often seek summer or part-time work at the Center.

TTC improves the lives of the educationally disadvantaged through caring, professional, individualized instruction and motivational support.

The organization also seeks to raise public awareness of literacy as an urgent social issue. This role, motivating the public to address literacy as a community and an individual need, is critical to the health and welfare of the residents of Bennington County and its surrounding communities.
