Literacy Association AGM and potluck closing the book on a successful year

CR Literacy tailors its programming to focus on the goals and needs of each learner

The CR Literacy Association is celebrating another successful year by hosting an End of Year Potluck and Annual General Meeting.

Join them on June 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Robron Center located at 740 Robron Rd. and help recognize the achievements of their learners and volunteers.

“It is important to recognize that knowing how to read and write impacts our everyday life. Nearly half of all Canadians struggle with some part of Literacy. When some of our learners come to us, they are not able to read such things as bus schedules, street signs or many other things that we take for granted,” said Sherry Bujold, Adult Literacy Program Coordinator.

The CR Literacy Association has five programs: the Adult Literacy Program, Youth ESL, Outreach Computer Literacy Program, Aboriginal Family Literacy, and Family Literacy.

To date in the 2014-2015 school year the association helped approximately 177 learners with the assistance of  71 volunteer tutors.

They rely tremendously on community volunteers to assist with learners meeting their literacy goals.

CR Literacy tailors its programming to focus on the goals and needs of each learner.  This learner centered approach is supported by volunteer tutors and is provided at no cost to the learner.

If you or someone you know might be interested in getting help with reading, writing, math or pronunciation, please call 250-923-1275 or email info@literacyforall.ca

They are looking for new board members and volunteers, if you are interested in either, contact them for more information.
