The purpose of the Sooke Region Literacy Project is to build community and help people in the Sooke Region achieve the sense of empowerment that goes along with literacy. Our community development work is aimed at enhancing, coordinating and creating literacy programs in the Sooke Region, from East Sooke to Port Renfrew, making sure that everyone has access to the learning opportunities they need to fulfill their full potential.
So what do we actually do? Sometimes our literacy work provides financial assistance to an existing community program so they can offer childcare, ensuring that parents can participate in a program that has literacy-enhancing components. Our work may involve supporting literacy programs by helping them buy books and materials. Other times, we talk to people offering community programs to help them add a literacy component to what they already do.
We also do research in our community to determine what programs we need to create or bring in in order to make sure the needs of all our citizens are met.
