GIVE THE GIFT OF LEARNING

Adults with low literacy levels and a lack of marketable skills are linked to unemployment, low income, poor health and limited involvement in the community. 

Skills Upgrading Centre works with adults to improve their literacy, math, computer and soft skills so they can work towards reaching their maximum potential and increase their ability to be contributing members of society.

Whether they have specific employment goals, want to pursue higher or specialized education or are looking for personal fulfillment, our programs are designed not only to help them learn, grow and succeed, but also to enrich the community as a whole.

Without the generous support of funders, donors, and volunteers like you, we wouldn’t be able to help adults in the community develop a lifelong love of learning. 
 

Ontario literacy levels by the numbers:

  • 42% of adults in Ontario lack proper literacy skills

  • 21% of adults in Ontario struggle with basic math

  • Less than 5% of these adults participate in adult literacy programs

With your help, we can make a positive impact in people’s lives and create a more inclusive community from which we all benefit. Please consider supporting our mission today.
