- The Washington Literacy Center (WLC), founded in 1963, is one of the oldest adult literacy programs in the District. We serve adults who have the most limited reading skills, fewest job resources and greatest employment needs in the District of Columbia.
Antonio Ward, Class of 2013
Antonio Ward came to WLC in July 2012. He had struggled with reading for as long as he could remember, and after falling further and further behind, he dropped out of school in the 10th grade. Antonio was placed in a Just Words class, and immediately began to shine. His success didn’t come easily. After attending classes for 13 months without missing a single day, Antonio has graduated from WLC in August 2013.
