Spotlight Event

Spotlight Event - WDIV Channel 4 Force 4 Good

The Oakland Literacy Council has been a “force” in Oakland County for over 30 years in their pursuit of addressing adult illiteracy. We have worked with thousands of adults in increasing their reading and/or listening levels. We believe our “good” work adds value to our communities by equipping adults with skills and confidence.

Our work was recently highlighted as a “Force 4 Good” on WDIV Channel 4 with Chuck Gaidica. Congratulations to our courageous students featured in the segment who shared their stories. And to the tutors who gave selflessly to be a part of these stories. Click to watch the segment Force 4 Good.
