Believing that literacy is the foundation of a sustainable community, Washtenaw Literacy provides literacy support, free of charge, to adults through a network of trained tutors.
Washtenaw Literacy is a non-profit organization that was established in 1971 by a group of community volunteers who aimed to empower adults through literacy education. We provide adult literacy services to the Washtenaw County community by offering in-person and virtual one-on-one tutoring, small group classes, and specialized programs to support adult learners to improve their reading, writing, math, and English as a second language skills. We also provide services such as GED preparation and job readiness training to guide learners to reach their educational and career goals. The organization is staffed by trained volunteer tutors and professional staff. They work with community partners to identify and serve the most in-need populations in the area.
