Washtenaw Literacy Overview
Washtenaw Literacy was founded in 1971 by a small group of volunteers who wanted to help other adults learn to read.

We remain the only organization in Washtenaw county that provides free, customized one-on-one tutoring to adults in reading and writing or English as a second language.
