The Literacy Crisis
Literacy is a basic human right.
Yet, 45% of working-aged Islanders don’t have the literacy skills needed to succeed in our digital world. (PIAAC 2012)
And, 40% of kindergarten-aged children in PEI who completed the Early Years Evaluation did not meet the developmental milestones in at least one of the five skill areas. (2017 Children’s Report)
And, 1200 Island children in grades K to 6 are referred to us by resource teachers every summer because they struggle with reading, writing or math.
We are determined to change these statistics
Thank you partners and donors for supporting our work. Together we are helping children, families and adults in need.
A special thank-you to the Province of PEI for operational funding of $200,000 (April 2019 to March 31 2020)
books in the home can have a positive impact on a child’s academic success later in life, and the more you add, the greater the impact.
elementary-aged children are referred to our Ready Set Learn Program every year because they struggle in school.
