What OLC Is All About

Through our networking and convening, we at Oakland Literacy Coalition (OLC) build connections and close the gap between individuals and entities, creating a united, community-powered, effort toward improving literacy for Oakland students.

During our annual Symposium, we strive to create an environment where together we can learn, strategize, elevate, and collaborate in order to empower Oakland learners of all ages with the literacy skills that set them on the path to success.
