What is Literacy?

More than just reading and writing, literacy is a way to understand and be a part of the world around you. Being able to read and write, having the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage your personal and work life are all part of literacy.

Aurora College has Literacy Outreach Centres in Fort Smith and Yellowknife that work with people who want to improve their English literacy levels but who are not ready to enroll in our Adult Literacy and Basic Education (ALBE) course.

Our Literacy Outreach Centres offer a gateway to lifelong learning that is open to everyone.
