Washington Literacy Center
- District of Columbia
The WLC program is the re-entry point into education for adults who struggle to read. The program is designed for adults who need to improve their basic reading skills to enter a GED program, job training program or who need to read better to enter or improve employment. Adults attend two-hour classes three times each week. Individual tutoring to support classroom instruction is available to WLC students with good class attendance. WLC students and alumni can also participate in classes and enrichment opportunities in workforce skills, basic computer skills, and financial literacy skills when sessions are offered. Our services are designed to make participants ‘program-ready’ and raise their competency to a place where they can successfully apply, enter, and complete these programs; and in doing so, improve the quality of live for them and their families.
