About RAINBOW LITERACY SOCIETY
Rainbow Literacy Society (RLS) is a non-profit organization that provides free family literacy programs. These programs include Books for Babies, Time for Rhymes, Building Blocks Family Literacy Program, Homegrown: Stories for Life, Pillowslip Stories and Building Adolescent Skills in School. RLS also delivers the Write Break Adult Literacy one-on-on volunteer tutor program.
RLS was formed in 1993 by a group of Vulcan County volunteers who wanted to develop preventative programs, based on the belief that language, literacy and communication skills are critical factors in the lives of every citizen in our community.
Staff and volunteers from RLS developed the Building Blocks Family Literacy Program in 1997. Staff are trained to work in-home with families on literacy skills. This model is now used by various programs in Western Canada.
In 2004 Rainbow Literacy Society was recognized by Literacy Alberta and received the Award of Excellence for an organization.
