Mission Statement

The mission of the Washington County Literacy Council is to teach low-level and non-reading adults basic literacy skills using trained tutors and to promote literacy by generating community awareness and support.

Description

In 1985, armed with just $500, a few boxes of tutoring materials and a table at Citizen's
Library, several Washington area literacy advocates pulled together and formed an
organization focused on eradicating illiteracy in Washington County.

Today, with the help of scores of supporters, volunteers and tutors, the Council has grown
into a vital community organization that has helped hundreds of adults in the area learn to
read.

The Council provides free, confidential one-on-one tutoring to adults who read below the
fourth grade level. Additionally, we provide English as a Second Language classes. The Council also participates in a number of literacy awareness programs
that focus on early childhood and family literacy.
