Our Mission is to change lives through literacy for people of all ages in Fairbanks and the Interior
Where We Serve
The Literacy Council of Alaska provides adult education services in the Interior and North Slope regions of Alaska. We provide English as a second language classes, tutoring to prepare students to earn their high school equivalency diploma, workforce training and educational support services, adult basic reading classes, and programming for school aged children. We also run Forget-Me-Not Books which creates a print rich community through low cost books, and allows us to donate books to other non-profits and community organizations.
“We acknowledge that our offices are located on the ancestral and unceded traditional territories of the lower Tanana Dene Peoples and the Dena'ina Peoples. The Indigenous peoples of this land never surrendered lands or resources to Russia or the United States.
We acknowledge this as both gratitude to the Indigenous communities who have held and continue to hold relationship with this land for generations AND also in recognition of the historical and ongoing legacy of colonialism. Additionally, we acknowledge this as a point of reflection for our agency as we work towards actively dismantling colonial practices.”
