Mission statement

Literacy Source partners with adults working to gain skills and education to create new opportunities for themselves, their families, and the community.


Vision Statement 

We envision an inclusive and equitable society providing education and opportunities for all adults.


Our Values

Lifelong Learning: We believe that all adults can learn and grow. 

Equity: We create equal access to education because systemic injustices and oppression lead to unequal opportunities and barriers to participation.

Inclusion: We foster an inclusive and multicultural space in which all cultures, traditions, social identities, and ways of knowing are respected and welcomed. 

Collaboration: We seek out the knowledge and experience of our community and work with others on shared goals.

Integrity: We are honest and accountable to each other and our community.

Celebration: We believe learning is fun and empowering and deserves to be celebrated alongside the community we’re building together.


Where are we going?

We are committed to ensuring that all adults in our community have the basic literacy skills needed to reach their goals. In the next three years, Literacy Source will reach and teach more students and increase the community impact of adult basic education programs by: 

  1. increasing access and reducing barriers
  2. expanding learning outcomes and opportunities
  3. building organizational capacity to meet community needs
