Project READ Literacy Network is the umbrella organization of literacy and essential skills in Waterloo-Wellington. We are a dynamic community collaboration devoted to increasing literacy levels through our work.

We are a doorway to literacy and Essential Skills services. We develop, in collaboration with local Literacy & Basic Skills (LBS) agencies, training solutions to meet the literacy needs of our citizens. Our members include literacy agencies, ESL programs, libraries, employment training organizations, and other concerned individuals/groups.

We believe literacy and Essential Skills are necessary to function independently to reach an individual’s full potential. Literacy and Essential Skills include:

  • Reading Text
  • Document Use
  • Writing
  • Numeracy/Math
  • Thinking Skills
  • Oral Communications
  • Working With Others
  • Computer Use
  • Continuous Learning

Low literacy affects 1 in 4 adults in Waterloo Region. These people lack the skills to deal with everyday printed materials.

Please support Project READ initiatives & activities to improve literacy in our community.
