Washtenaw Literacy

Washtenaw Literacy’s purpose is straightforward: we help adults change their lives through literacy. Our organization has over 30 years' experience in helping men and women improve their reading, writing and English as a second language skills.

This focus on individual goals makes our program unique in the county. Washtenaw Literacy is a critical part of our community’s educational continuum. Someday we hope to have no need for our services. Until then, we’ll support our volunteer tutors as they help low-literate men and women improve their skills and their lives.

Gabi, a girl in piecesBy Quintero, Isabel
Gabi thinks of herself as many things, a fat girl, a gordita (a cute chubby girl), a Mexican American who looks white, the child of immigrants, a writer, and the child of an addict. During her tumultuous last year of high school Gabi struggles to support her friends and family through tough times while also pursuing her own dreams.
