Low-cost English classes for adults
Founded more than 40 years ago, Beaverton Literacy Council (BLC) is a community-based, all volunteer organization. Our volunteers, many of whom have been with BLC for many years, are trained to offer positive, encouraging tutoring experiences.

The Beaverton Literacy Council provides adult instruction in English literacy, English as a Second Language, and U.S. Citizenship.

Beaverton Literacy Council is completely run and staffed by volunteers; you can help! Click here for our volunteer page.
