Since 1967, International Literacy Day (ILD) celebrations have taken place annually around the world to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society.
This year’s International Literacy Day will be celebrated worldwide under the theme, Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces and will be an opportunity to rethink the fundamental importance of literacy learning spaces to build resilience and ensure quality, equitable, and inclusive education for all.
Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist with at least 771 million young people and adults lacking basic literacy skills today.
Frontier College is a national charitable literacy organization. We believe literacy is a right. We work with volunteers and community partners to give people the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential. Our network of volunteers provides excellent and effective programming to improve literacy in communities across Canada, from coast to coast to coast. Every place is a learning place, and we go where people are, rather than expecting them to come to us.
