If you can read this, you are one of the lucky ones. Nearly half of all adults in New Brunswick do not have the minimum literacy skills needed to cope with the demands of everyday life and work.
Laubach Literacy NB is working to change that with trained tutors throughout the province offering free, confidential one-on-one tutoring services to help adults improve their basic reading, writing and math skills. Research shows that adults with higher literacy skills are healthier, less likely to live in levels of poverty, and have more employment opportunities.
Your donation to Laubach Literacy NB allows us to train tutors province-wide, provide workbooks and resources for learners that are relevant to their skill level and daily lives, and advocate for improved access to services. It also allows us reduce the barriers, both social and economic, to accessing our services.
