Our Adult Literacy programs are designed to address the needs of adults in our communities. Along with implementing Adult Literacy programs, the Literacy Outreach Coordinator advocates on behalf of the adult population in our region and meets with adults one-on-one to discuss free learning opportunities and any current gaps.
Currently we have four Adult Literacy programs:
Partners: Okanagan College, Okanagan Regional Library, WorkBC, South Shuswap Health Services Society, Salmon Arm Seniors’ Drop-In Centre
Funding for these programs is provided as follows:
Blind Bay Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring: Government of Canada New Horizons Grant and Decoda Literacy Solutions
Salmon Arm Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring: The Province of British Columbia Community Gaming Grant and Decoda Literacy Solutions
Adult Learning Advocacy and Literacy Audit and Plain Language Workshops: The Province of British Columbia Community Gaming Grant and Decoda Literacy Solutions
