Reveal Potential

We’ve got some exciting news to share with you! We are launching #RevealPotential, a digital campaign that aims to kick-start a new, more holistic conversation about literacy and essential skills as tactics for poverty reduction.

Visit our campaign page to download graphics and find sample tweets and posts that make it easy to take part.

 As you might know, the best way to lift people out of poverty is to improve literacy and essential skills. One in five people in Canada struggles with reading, writing, or skills like math. Compared to those with a high level of literacy, people with low literacy have fewer choices when it comes to jobs, education, and housing.
 
But the good news is that literacy programs, like those that Frontier College offers, can make a real difference, helping unlock the potential of thousands of adults and children across Canada and ending the cycle of poverty.
 
We invite you to play a role in the #RevealPotential campaign by sharing  and spreading the word across social media. Visit our campaign page to download graphics and find sample tweets and posts that make it easy to take part.
You can help us by sharing a few words from your perspective on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #RevealPotential. Make sure to also share the campaign on your organization’s social media, and forward this email to your colleagues too.
 
The #RevealPotential campaign will culminate in March with the release of Frontier College’s national research report on Literacy as a Poverty Reduction Strategy. This project will contribute to the development of the Government of Canada’s Poverty Reduction Strategy.
