Mission Statement

The Whatcom Literacy Council (WLC) was founded in 1978 with the mission to teach adults in Whatcom County to read, write, and speak English. Thousands of adults have changed their lives through their work with WLC. Our students learn to read to their children, find or maintain employment, communicate with physicians, volunteer in local schools, vote, and attain personal goals. Tutoring is free and confidential and supported by donations. The need for our services continues to grow due to changes in employment standards, cuts in State funding, welfare reform, and immigration patterns. At any given time we have as many as 30 adults who are waiting to learn to read.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Adults with improved literacy skills earn more money, raise healthy families, vote, and give back to their communities in countless ways. At the Whatcom Literacy Council learners set their own goals, such as reading to their children, getting a drivers' license, getting a better job, or obtaining citizenship, and learning plans are developed based on those goals. Volunteer tutors receive 8 hrs of training from ProLiteracy certified staff before beginning to work with a learner, and then receive ongoing support throughout their service. Tutors submit reports monthly tracking time with their learner, and when goals are achieved. In 2012 497 learners met 577 of their goals. The Whatcom Literacy Council believes that our community is a healthier one when a greater number of adults achieve the self sufficiency that better literacy skills support.
