With a close to 2017, Project Literacy is proud to reflect on its achievements. One highlight of the year was being awarded, in November, the 2017 Literacy Award by the Council of the Federation Literacy. This award recognizes achievement, innovative practice and excellence in literacy across Canada.
Project Literacy recognizes that not every person learns in the same way – a ‘one to one’ approach is used to work with different learning styles, creating a customized educational plan in helping reach each learner’s goal. To date, Project Literacy has helped over 6000 Okanagan residents in literacy.
“Literacy skills help British Columbians reach their full potential and lead successful lives. The work of community literacy organizations like Project Literacy Kelowna Society is instrumental in improving the quality of life of children and families, youth, adults and seniors in B.C. I want to congratulate the dedicated staff and volunteers at Project Literacy Kelowna Society on earning this well-deserved recognition.” – Rob Fleming, Minister of Education
