Celebrating 15 years!
This month marks the 15th anniversary of The Literacy Group of Waterloo Region! With the support of our staff, tutors and volunteers, we’ve accomplished a lot since 1999:
Why literacy matters
A 2013 report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development confirmed that low literacy and numeracy skills among adults aged 16 to 65 are still a concern in Canada.*
People with low literacy skills are
In Ontario, 60% of people with Level 2 literacy skills and 80% of people with Level 1 literacy skills are likely to have no or very little income and struggle financially.
TLG helps people who want to change their lives
It takes personal determination and community support for adults to improve their literacy skills and make a better life.
Jermaine, one of our Learners of the Year, is just one example of how The Literacy Group has changed lives for the better. Nominated by his teachers and fellow students, he explains, “I meet people who motivate me and help me with my English and maths.” He is thankful for the people and resources that have contributed to his success and can already see the improvement in his literacy and math skills.
Help us mark our 15th anniversary and give the gift of literacy!
