Celebrating the past - Creating the future
Series: Frontier College - Annual Report
Authors: Frontier College
In 2009, Frontier College marked its 110th birthday. This report includes a historic perspective on the organization’s changing roles, from the labourer-teachers in frontier camps in its early decades, through a diversification of literacy outreach activities, to the emphasis on lifelong learning and the efforts to meet new challenges in a new century.
The report includes profiles of Frontier College’s activities in communities around Canada, including an English as a Second Language (ESL) program for domestic workers in Vancouver; a Junior Chefs program for children in Saskatoon; and an after-school Reading Buddies program in Fredericton that pairs senior citizens and children.
The report includes brief updates on research and community partnerships; a statement of operations for Frontier College; and a financial statement for the Frontier College Foundation, which raises money to support Frontier College’s programs.
