Literacy opens doors
Our mission is to advance literacy for the people of Prince Edward Island.
We believe that building a culture of literacy and learning supports all Islanders to reach their full potential and helps build a better future.
When people say “literacy,” we often think of reading and writing.
Literacy is broader than that. It includes math, communication, digital, and thinking skills. These basic skills we need to navigate the world around us are called Essential Skills by the Government of Canada. The level of your literacy skills often plays a large role in determining your level of education, income, health and community engagement.
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 supporting us with operational funding of $150,000 annually.
