Family literacy offers a more innovative and proactive approach to literacy development. We open new windows of opportunity so that all Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
In 2020, despite the impact of COVID, 4,000 adults and children were served by our programs and services!
Our Family Book Club was recognized with an Honourable Mention for the Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award from ABC Life Literacy Canada. The virtual awards ceremony, and ABC-moderated roundtable discussion, was held October 14th.

It’s never too early!
Children who begin life in a learning environment are more likely to succeed in school and in life and parents are their first teachers. Our programs provide parents with the tools they need to support their children’s early language and literacy development.
It’s never too late!
We also support adult learners on their literacy journey, building on strengths and meeting the individual needs of the learners.
