Series: Frontier College - Annual Report
Authors: Frontier College
Frontier College is a national literacy organization that provides learning opportunities for Canadians of all ages through its partnerships with a variety of community groups.
The authors provide a numerical snapshot of the organization’s impact, pointing out that in 2010-2011, Frontier College volunteers worked with more than 17,000 participants across the country; distributed almost 40,000 books; and trained more than 2,500 participants through 130 literacy workshops.
The report highlights some of Frontier College’s recent activities, including a program in British Columbia that helps at-risk youth through adventure-based learning; a summer literacy camp for Aboriginal children in Manitoba; and a homework club for Francophone immigrants in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The report also includes financial statements for both Frontier College and the Frontier College Foundation, which raises money to support the organization’s programs.
