Frontier College
Literacy is an essential skill in today's world. At Frontier College, we believe it's a fundamental right. Frontier College is Canada's original literacy organization. Founded in 1899 by a group of university students and faculty, its mission was to live, work and teach in isolated frontier settlements. Today, Frontier College volunteers and community partners work on Canada's new frontiers - inner city schools and streets, public housing sites, farms, prisons and reserves. Low literacy skills are directly linked to poverty, poor health and high unemployment. 42% of adult Canadians have trouble with everyday tasks that involve reading. That's millions of Canadians who are not reaching their potential. Through a network of thousands of volunteers, Frontier College is helping people realize their potential and seize the opportunities that come their way.
