Literacy Source partners with adults working to gain skills and education to create new opportunities for themselves, their families, and the community. As a non-profit community learning center, we envision and work towards an inclusive and equitable society providing education and opportunities for all adults. We provide free basic skills classes and one-on-one tutoring at our Learning Center in Lake City and in locations throughout the community.Our students range in age from 18 to 90, speak 50 languages, and represent 68 nations. 97% of our students are low-income and 88% are immigrants or refugees. All of our students, however, share one common element - the desire to learn, to achieve and to live a better life.
Board of Directors Members support and enhance the mission of Literacy Source by participating in long-range planning, providing guidance on continuous service improvement, guaranteeing a stable financial base for the program, and interpreting the mission of Literacy Source in the wider community.
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.
Literacy Source is a safe and community-centered environment where adults can improve basic reading, writing, math, English language, computer, employment, and life skills.
