"Moving beyond words into the world..."
Welcome to the Wiarton & District Family Literacy Association! We are a non-profit, community-based organization offering assistance to area residents, of all ages, who want to improve their literacy skills. We strive to work with our various community partners in order to reach this goal.
Literacy improvement takes on many faces. For some, it means supporting a child who faces certain challenges in school. For others, it means completing those extra secondary school courses in order to gain a diploma and either enter the job market or have an opportunity to attend college or university. Or perhaps you’re the person who simply wants to know a little bit more about your computer so that you can send off those important messages and photos to the grandchildren. At the WDFLA we promise to help you with all of that!
Mission Statement: We provide the local community with alternative solutions to their literacy and numeracy needs. Our flexible programs offer clients the opportunity to achieve their goals in a way that enables them to take maximum control of their own lives. We do this in an atmosphere that is nurturing and ensures complete confidentiality.
Vision Statement: Our goal is to assist in developing a literacy-rich community. We will offer a variety of programs, using specific strategies, methods or approaches that will engage each of our clients in such a way that they are able to achieve personal success. We will continue to build strong relationships with other groups who are also working to strengthen our local community.
