September 8th is International Literacy Day.
The theme this year is Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces.
Low literacy skills limit someone’s access to vital support services, education, health care, as well as work, employment and recreational opportunities.
Helping someone improve their literacy skills can change their lives. Providing an enriched and welcoming learning space where they feel ready to learn is so important.
That’s what we do at Literacy Unlimited.
Over the past 3 years, Literacy Unlimited has leveraged our resources, adapted our approaches, and transformed to meet the needs of our community. We now provide free tutoring services to adults in-person and online.
We listen to our adult learners and find ways to provide services at a time and place that works for them. We take care to match a learner with a volunteer tutor that suites their learning style. We provide the resources that each individual needs to reach their goals.
We are not perfect. We are life long learners always looking for ways to improve what we do.
This year, we want to provide our services to even more people in our community. We know the need is there. Our challenge is reaching all the people who need us ~ adults of different profiles and contexts, from within our communities and from historically marginalized and underserved groups.
This year, YOU CAN HELP.
Help us spread the word about our services in your community.
We ask you to take time to talk to someone you know about our services.
- Talk about how important reading and writing is to you – giving you access to good health information, financial resources, job opportunities, leisure activities and so much more.
- Think about how you learned to read, write and develop literacy skills for the world around you throughout your life.
- Share your stories of the support you have received and the great gift that literacy is.
- Then tell someone you know about Literacy Unlimited.
