About Us

The Oakland Literacy Coalition (OLC) works to meet the literacy needs in our city, particularly for our youngest readers, by amplifying the impact of Oakland’s literacy providers. Building a future where every Oakland child can learn and love to read will take all of us. That’s why we’ve built a thriving network of stakeholders to support our city’s learners and we serve as an anchor for Oakland’s literacy efforts.

The OLC supports our network of partners to learn, collaborate, and champion literacy in order to achieve more powerful impact together. We provide training and technical assistance, leverage resources, foster partnerships, encourage dialogue, and build awareness for a citywide literacy agenda that supports equity and outcomes for all students.

The OLC was convened by the Rogers Family Foundation in 2008 and launched as an independent nonprofit organization in 2016. As a young nonprofit, we are in an exciting phase of strategic growth and organizational development to deepen our impact as an innovative, effective, and sustainable literacy hub for Oakland. Our friendly, passionate and entrepreneurial team, led by two women Co-Directors, is committed to fostering collaboration and continuous learning internally and across our network to advance our mission.
