Media Advisory - Meet some extraordinary adults



    Media invited to Frontier College celebration with adult literacy
    learners and tutors

    TORONTO, Dec. 6 /CNW/ - The media are invited to join Frontier College
adult literacy learners and their tutors for an annual celebration of success
on Monday, December 10, 2007.
    These learners are part of the Frontier College Independent Studies
Program which is a community-based adult literacy program located in downtown
Toronto that provides learning opportunities to people with disabilities. The
program helps students work towards greater self-confidence and personal
independence so that they can take part in or move on to other educational,
employment or life opportunities.

    
    There will be an opportunity to:
    -  Talk to Frontier College learners, staff and volunteers about the
       impact of gaining literacy skills on the lives of these individuals
    -  Learn how to get involved in Frontier College, Canada's original,
       national literacy organization, founded in 1899

    WHO:     Frontier College adult literacy learners and volunteer tutors

    Literacy is an essential skill in today's world. At Frontier College, we
believe it's a fundamental right. Low literacy skills are directly linked to
poverty, poor health and high unemployment. Forty-two 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 to realize their potential and
seize the opportunities that come their way.
