Our Mission

The mission of the Oakland Literacy Coalition is to increase the capacity of literacy providers to improve early learning outcomes in order to ensure that all Oakland children are reading at a proficient level by the end of third grade. We fulfill this mission through collaboration, promotion of effective practices, resource development and policy work.

Upcoming OLC Events

OLC Volunteer Training Series

The OLC offers biannual training for volunteers who will be working with Oakland students on literacy skills. Take advantage of this great opportunity to improve your effectiveness as a volunteer, and have the option to get free TB testing and Live Scan fingerprinting (required by most programs where volunteers work directly with students.) Our event will be on:

Tuesday, September 30 and Thursday October 2
3:30 - 6:00 PM
Fingerprinting and TB testing from 3:30 - 4:30
Workshops begin at 4:30
East Bay Community Foundation Conference Center
