    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.
