Washtenaw Literacy is Washtenaw County's only free literacy resource for adults 16 and older, providing tutoring in basic skills, English language learning, reading, writing, math, and digital literacy. We are Michigan's oldest and largest literacy organization, serving around 2,000 learners annually through a network of trained volunteer tutors. We are committed to our asset-based strategic framework and hold ourselves accountable to our Core Values: Passion, Integrity, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Cultural Responsiveness is essential to achieving our mission. We aspire to advance equity and build a multicultural workplace that balances self-awareness with practice. Each Washtenaw Literacy employee commits to self-reflection and growth in their own cultural beliefs, values, and biases. We strive to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into Washtenaw Literacy's organizational culture. Our core values guide this ongoing work.
