Or that,

“52% of BC adults find it hard to calculate medicine dosage, use information from graphs, or fill out a log book at work due to low numeracy skills.”

READ Surrey/White Rock is helping to change these shocking statistics. Each small step makes a difference to the lives of the people we assist. For many, learning to improve reading, writing, and math skills is life changing.

Partners Program

The Partners program is free and confidential. We offer one-to-one tutoring on reading, writing, and math to adult learners. Learners are matched with a trained volunteer tutor.

The matched pair works together to develop a learning plan. This plan is based on the learner’s needs and interests.

We acknowledge the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia
