Building strong individuals, strong families
and strong communities…
Decoda Literacy Solutions provides resources, training and funds to support community-based literacy and learning initiatives in over 400 communities across British Columbia. Working with a network of 102 Literacy Outreach Coordinators, we bring together community leaders from education, health, business and government to identify and address local literacy priorities. We work to increase the literacy and learning skills of children and families, youth, adults, and seniors to improve their quality of life at home, at work and in the community.
