Hastings North Community Literacy Plan

hastings_north.pngThe Hastings North Community Literacy Plan is developed in collaboration with neighbourhood organizations and community members with the leadership of the Hastings North Literacy Roundtable over a one year period from 2011-12.  The purpose of this plan is to give a snapshot view of how literacy and learning happens in our community.  We did not just focus on formal “school” learning. We looked at informal learning programs and services like family programs where parents are learning about health issues and also supporting each other. 
 
We collected information through interviewing service providers, surveys, two community consultations with community members, and monthly meetings with the Literacy Roundtable comprised of seven neighbourhood organizations. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who contributed and participated in the plan development process.
 
This plan is a work in progress and will be continuously updated as new information and knowledge becomes available. We invite community members, service providers and all other interested parties to continue to provide comments and participate in our diverse literacy initiatives at any time.
