Serving DC Adults

The Washington Literacy Center has been helping DC residents with the greatest barriers and fewest resources learn to read since 1965. Starting off as an all-volunteer initiative, the WLC has grown into a dynamic nonprofit with full-time staff, professionally-trained instructors, and passionate volunteers.

The Washington Literacy Center achieves its goal of helping DC adults re-enter the workforce through small-group literacy classes, extracurricular trainings ranging in topic from math to computers, and individual tutoring.


The Washington Literacy Center relies on the support of our community. Make a donation today to help make reading a reality.
