Project Highlights
Youth Financial Literacy

In the summer of 2020, the Yukon Literacy Coalition launched a youth entrepreneurship initiative that supports and offers opportunities and guidance to Yukon youth (12-18 years old) who want to work for themselves and with others. The Yukon Literacy Coalition assists with start-up costs, marketing, budgeting and anything else to help the youth succeed with their project.

Community Literacy

The Yukon Literacy Coalition has been working with Letha, a community facilitator in Watson Lake to organize and deliver a sewing program. The program consist of 8 participants who are learning to sew their first jellyroll quilt. All supplies are included as the participants sew and laugh together on Saturday afternoons at the Yukon University campus.

Winter Fun at the Family Literacy Centre

Have you checked-out our single-use crafts and activities?

At the FLC, we haven’t let the pandemic get in the way of families learning and playing together. Outside of our usual toys, puzzles, and games, we’ve set-up a table with a broad selection of ready-to-go crafts and activities, just for you! Pick-up a tray, have a seat, and wash + dry a load of play laundry. Colour by number, paint wood with acrylic markers, or glue and paste a “penguin paradise.” Explore magnetism, make Oobleck, and much, much more. There’s something for everyone!

And don’t forget, when it’s time to go, pick-up one of our takeaway crafts to bring home and enjoy later. See you soon!
