Thank you for supporting Beaverton Literacy Council
With support from individuals and organizations in the community, Beaverton Literacy Council (BLC) provides free and low-cost online and in-person English classes for adult immigrants in Oregon. In 2020-2021, we served over 400 individuals from over 45 countries with classes taught by over 80 volunteers. Our classes place a premium not only on teaching English, but also on building community and helping students understand American culture, government, and local events.
Our students say:
"I had no idea that I can learn English with people from different countries in a good environment."
We are an all-volunteer organization with a dedicated board of directors. Our board includes people with experience in teaching, finance, operations, marketing, and learning languages.
Within Oregon, BLC's program is part of an interconnected web of English programs and other services that work with immigrants. We have active partnerships with Portland Literacy Council, Rosewood Initiative, Portland State University's Applied Linguistics Department, and others.
Your support makes a difference!
