A TIME TO CELEBRATE OUR
PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
The Washington Literacy Center (WLC) has been helping DC residents with the greatest barriers and fewest resources learn to read since 1963. Starting off as an all-volunteer initiative, the WLC has grown into a dynamic nonprofit focused on teaching skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century. We help students overcome some of the most difficult challenges including dyslexia, reading, math, and other barriers to education.
This year marks 60 years of dedicated service and the power of people who help further our mission: to raise the literacy level of adults in Washington, D.C., so they may function on the job, in the family, and in society.
As WLC marks the progress we have made, we want to use this opportunity to look back at lessons learned, helping DC adult learners achieve their goals. We also want to look forward and consider what the next 10 years might hold.
We have planned a series of events throughout 2023 to offer opportunities for reflection, learning from the community and our partners and sponsors, collective impact experts, and others.
