Through our Community Literacy Outreach Program, Literacy Victoria offers marginalized adults free help with reading, writing, math and computer skills. This occurs through partner agencies and in shelters.
Our community partner agencies provide the space. We provide the supplies, equipment, and trained literacy outreach volunteers.
Each site has learning activities developed to fit clients’ interests and needs, the organization’s space, and Literacy Victoria’s resources. Trained literacy volunteers work with clients to help them set and reach their own learning goals. There may be one-to-one or group work.
Our current sites are Sandy Merriman House Emergency Shelter for Women, Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre, Pacifica Housing, Access Health Centre, Victoria Native Friendship Centre, James Bay Community Project, and the various shelters visited by the LV Bookmobile for the Homeless.
