READ Saskatoon

READ Saskatoon is a community-based, volunteer, literacy organization. We provide free literacy services to adults and their families living in Saskatoon. We are governed by a volunteer board of directors who value literacy and care about the impact low literacy has on individuals and families in our community and province. The acquisition of literacy skills reduces poverty and inequality, builds individual self-esteem and capability, contributes to family and community well-being and lays the groundwork for sustained economic growth in our city. We believe everyone has the right to learn, regardless of age. We believe strong literacy skills are not attained by chance. We believe communities have a right to responsive and effective literacy programs that are attended to with diligence. We believe lifelong habits contribute to strong and resilient communities.
