In Canada approximately 42% of adults have low literacy skills.
Reading Advantage is a literacy program which pairs volunteers and adults with low literacy skills, for a period of approximately one year. Volunteer coaches help participants develop basic reading and writing skills, experience the joys of reading, and pursue individual goals. A student-centred method is utilized to build upon each individual’s needs, strengths, learning styles and life experiences.
Help a person reach their full potential by volunteering for Reading Advantage!
