Adult Literacy Fredericton strives to empower adult learners 18 years of age and older by helping them acquire the reading, writing, and numeracy skills necessary to function successfully at home, at work,and in the community, to achieve their goals, and to develop their full potential. We also seek to raise awareness of literacy issues by educating the community about the realities of low literacy, reducing the stigma attached to low literacy, making employers and co-workers more supportive of those with literacy challenges, and encouraging learners to apply to our program. Our trained volunteer tutors use the “Each One Teach One” method to give learners the basic tools and the confidence they need to seek better job and educational opportunities, to take control of their finances and health, and to participate in the literacy development of their children.
What People Are Saying
"Some say they get lost in books, but I find myself, again and again, in the pages of a good book. Humanly speaking, there is no greater teacher, no greater therapist, no greater healer of the soul, than a well-stocked library. "
