About Literacy Source

Location:

3200 NE 125th ST, Seattle, WA 98125, US

Mission Statement

Literacy Source partners with adults working to gain skills and education to create new opportunities for themselves, their families, and the community. We envision an inclusive and equitable society providing education and opportunities for all adults. We believe that all adults can improve their basic skills and that community volunteers, trained and supported by professional staff, can work with students to make this happen. We welcome the challenge of developing the habit of independent lifelong learning. The Literacy Source story unfolds each day at our center - and in homes, community centers, and workplaces around Seattle and the Puget Sound region - as adult learners work towards literacy, English language skills, citizenship, better jobs, and better lives. Our students range in age from 19 to 86, and speak 41 languages. 97% of our students are low-income and 96% are immigrants or refugees.

Description

Literacy Source is a safe and community-centered environment, working to become a fully inclusive, multicultural, anti-racist organization. Commitment from our volunteers to this work is essential and we strongly encourage applications from people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, people with disabilities, members of the LBGTQ community and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.
