Feature Charity: Victoria Literacy Connection

1 in 5 adults and many children need better literacy skills to keep up in today’s society. Victoria Literacy Connection is a charity offering free in-person and remote tutoring for learners of all ages in the Southern Vancouver Island region.

The Victoria Literacy Connection (VLC) was formed in early 2017 when the Boards of The Victoria READ Society and Literacy Victoria decided if they worked together they would  reach a wider and broader range of people who struggle with literacy in its many and varied forms. Two hard and fast rules were kept from Literacy Victoria: all tutoring would be undertaken by dedicated, trained volunteers, and no individual would be charged for tutoring services.  Cost should never be a barrier to literacy.
