Most of our Literacy programs are still running during COVID-19, although we have moved all sessions online, instead of meeting in person. We are supporting all our volunteers and participants to help them find the tools they need to continue learning, and we are taking on new volunteers and participants when we have capacity. 

Interested in participating?

Community and Family Literacy

We recognize that literacy enriches the lives of individuals and families, facilitating opportunities for neighbours to fully participate in their community. At the same time, literacy opens doors for skill- and career-development and employment options, and empowers community members to connect to meaningful resources—making them more capable and resilient.

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House serves as a steward for community literacy outreach by strengthening resources and connections among local partners, helping community members contribute positively to society.
