This report is part of a project that was initiated by the New Brunswick Department of Education. The department provided funding for the Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick to design and conduct a survey of English-language, community-based literacy programs. The purpose of the survey was to help determine areas of greatest need for investment and to inform school districts of the community-based programs within their districts.
The survey aimed to identify the following features of community-based literacy programs and services:
- frequency and intensity
- impact (evaluation/research)
- funding information
- gaps in provision and associated difficulties.
This report includes the following sections:
- conducting the survey
- limitations of the project
- survey results: distribution of organizations by county; table showing program details by county; summary of program detail by type of organization
