Parkdale Project Read is a non-profit, community-based literacy program that operates an adult learning centre in the Parkdale community.
At Project Read, we support adults to realize their learning goals by providing free literacy services in a supportive community. We work with English-speaking adults who want to learn to read, write, or use basic math or computer skills.
We are dedicated to creating a comfortable and accessible learning environment where students can bring their whole self (body, mind, emotions, spirit) to learning.
Project Read believes in a learner-based approach – it is the student who decides how and what they learn. Our trained, volunteer tutors work with individual or groups of learners to help them find the best way to learn.
