MEDIA ADVISORY “Introducing Literacy South Halton”

We’re pleased to announce that the Literacy Council of Burlington and the Oakville Literacy Council are joining forces to create “Literacy South Halton.” Both the Oakville and Burlington Literacy councils have long track records of changing lives through improved literacy. Through a combination of paid staff and volunteers, they have provided confidential one-on-one and group tutoring in reading, writing, math and computer skills. This is critical work. Imagine not being able to fill in out a job application form? Or not being able to read to your child? Or finding it impossible to communicate with a relative by email? Addressing low literacy means attacking the root cause of many other difficulties people face in their lives. Low literacy skills have been linked to higher unemployment, low income, health issues and reduced involvement in the community, a reality that’s become ever more apparent in our technology-reliant world. The goal to join together the two key literacy groups in the southern portion of the Region of Halton will result in a stronger organization. By coming together as Literacy South Halton, we’re not only committed to continuing our previous work…but also improving service to adults who need help with essential skills. Services will continue to be offered at the existing space in Upper Canada Place, Suite 21, 460 Brant Street, Burlington including the satellite office at Woodside Library, 1274 Rebecca Street, Oakville.

Literacy South Halton’s program is a registered non-profit organization supported by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development and this Employment Ontario service is funded in part by the Province of Ontario and Government of Canada.
