Our mission is to provide any adult or family in Waterloo Wellington with access to literacy training.
About PROJECT READ LITERACY NETWORK (WATERLOO-WELLINGTON)
We are a doorway to literacy services offered in our region. We develop, in collaboration with the local Literacy & Basic Skills (LBS) agencies, training solutions to meet the literacy needs of our citizens. Associates of our network include literacy agencies, English as a second language programs, libraries, employment training organizations, and other concerned individuals and groups. Project READ provides many services to the public and to our network associates.
Project READ defines literacy as follows:
- Literacy is more than knowing how to read and write.
- A person who is literate can use reading, writing, speaking, and numerical skills effectively to understand and participate in the world around them.
- Literacy is not a fixed skill. It needs to be exercised and challenged. Otherwise, the skill will not strengthen and may weaken.
