Literacy in Saskatoon
READ Saskatoon is a volunteer literacy organization that provides services to adults, families, and community partners.
- We believe everyone has the right to learn, regardless of age. Our oldest adult learner is 83. Our oldest tutor is 77.
- We believe strong literacy skills are not attained by chance. Last year, we collaborated to provide accessible programming in over 40 community locations.
- We believe communities have a right to responsive and effective literacy programs that are attended to with diligence. We are committed to measuring the effectiveness of our programs and training by tracking the long-term changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours.
- We believe lifelong learning habits contribute to strong and resilient communities. “Reading is not walking on the words; it’s grasping the soul of them.” ― Paulo Freire
