About LITERACY COUNCIL OF DURHAM REGION
The Literacy Council of Durham Region is a charitable, non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to increasing literacy in the Durham Region. Guided by the principle of Each One, Teach One, volunteer tutors and staff members identify individual learner needs and design learning activities to help meet goals related to independence, employment or further education/training. The Literacy Council has been in operation since 1980 and provides an essential service within the region, with a recent International Adult Literacy Survey indicating that 1 out of 5 adults in the Durham Region need help with reading and writing.
Since 2005 the Council has worked with over 710 learners and delivered 56,409 hours of direct literacy instruction. Without the generous support of funders and volunteers, the Council would not be able to help adult learners reach their goals and enrich their lives.
