Community Literacy

The Terrace Community Literacy Outreach Coordinator (LOC) is funded by Decoda Literacy Solutions for five hours per week.

The LOC: 

  • Organizes Terrace Literacy Task Group meetings throughout the year 
  • Communicates literacy updates to Task Group members
  • Coordinates local literacy initiatives involving multiple stakeholders 

Why Literacy Matters: 

  • https://cwf.ca/research/publications/what-now-busted-11-enduring-literacy-myths/
  • Poverty: Literacy skill level and household income are positively related. At $84,600, the median household income for individuals with the highest literacy proficiency (level 4 and level 5) was 70% higher than it was for those with lowest literacy proficiency (level 1 and below), and 33% higher than for those in the level 2 proficiency category.
