The District's Pathway to Literacy and Employment

The Washington Literacy Center serves adults who have the most limited reading skills, fewest job resources and greatest employment needs in the District of Columbia.

Here in the Nation's Capital, many of our neighbors cannot read our street signs, the name of their Metro station, or a job application. For these residents, the Washington literacy Center is the only point of re-entry to a fully independent life.

"Coming to the WLC has helped me gain back the respect of my family and friends, and especially myself." -Linda
