We motivate adults to continue learning.

The mission of Literacy in Action is to offer literacy training, resources and learning opportunities, in English and encourage community collaboration to improve literacy levels in the Eastern Townships region of Quebec.


Here's what we do.

  • Pair you with a free and confidential volunteer tutor.
  • Host workshops for fun group learning.
  • Develop programs with creative community partners.
  • Engage volunteers in important literacy work.
