Literacy and Basic Skills Program
Parkdale Project Read’s Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) program builds a range of skills, knowledge, and competencies that support learners in their efforts to gain personal independence, expand their employment opportunities, and/or pursue further education. The LBS program supports learners at different levels of literacy and can serve as a bridge to our Academic Upgrading Program.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, PPR's in-person programs are on-hold. We continue to support learners by phone, email, video-conference, and through our weekly remote learning groups and online programming. We also support tutors and learners who meet remotely.
