Community Literacy Development

One of our key goals is to increase the capacity of individuals and organizations to build sustainable literacy projects and supports. Over the past year we delivered the following services:

  • Tools for Community Building workshop - a 3 day workshop that assists participants to 1) identify literacy needs in their community, 2) develop skills in program planning and 3) develop skills in proposal writing and fundraising to support their literacy project;
  • Tools for Community Building Resource Manual - We developed a resource manual based on the Tools workshop and distributed it to all Community Learning Centres and literacy practitioners in the NWT;
  • Supports for Learners with Disabilities - We offered a three-day Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) training event for adult educators. 36 educators from across the NWT participated in the training.
  • Tutor Training - We provided training to local literacy tutoring programs;
  • Family Literacy Workshops - delivery of specific family literacy workshops to community groups
  • Outreach and Support - we provide ongoing support to community literacy projects via phone, e-mail and mail.
