ABBOTSFORD – New Democrat MLA Pam Alexis says people in Abbotsford will have more opportunities to improve their literacy, math skills, and digital skills thanks to increased funding for Community Adult Literacy Programs.
“We live in a world that is built for people with reading, writing and digital literacy skills, making community literacy programs more important than ever,” said Pam Alexis, MLA for Abbotsford-Mission. “I’m glad to see funding for adult literacy programs across the province, including for Archway Community Services Access2English program in Abbotsford to help make sure that we aren’t leaving anyone behind.”
Archway Community Services in Abbotsford is receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Program, “Access2English.” These community-based programs are offered by trained volunteers and focus on basic literacy, numeracy, life skills and employment preparation, and can be a starting point towards high school completion and/or further education or training.
The New Democrat government invests $3.4 million annually for Community Adult Literacy Programs, as part of our commitment to giving people the skills and opportunities they need to succeed.
