Adult Literacy: You Can Make a Difference
Since 1983, the Whatcom Literacy Council has been helping adults in Whatcom County improve their literacy skills and learn English. At the Whatcom Literacy Council, we empower adults to achieve their goals and improve their lives through literacy.
There are numerous social issues that are impacted by low literacy rates, including crime, health, poverty, and the workforce. As ProLiteracy states on their website, "When individuals learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they have the power to lift themselves out of poverty, lower health care costs, find and keep sustainable employment, and ultimately change their lives."
We are working hard to improve adult literacy in Whatcom County with the help of our tutors, donors, and local business supporters. Learn how you can be a part of the progress on our website and learn more about adult literacy on ProLiteracy's website.
