In response to Covid-19 not allowing us to travel to Yukon communities as much as we typically would, we are raising $60,000 to have a Family Literacy Centre on Wheels: a retrofitted 24 passenger bus in which we can provide free family literacy programming, including crafts, games and storytelling. The bus will be stocked with a free library and resources that will help parents support their children’s language and literacy development.
The Family Literacy Centre on Wheels will allow us to travel and deliver programs in rural communities and at gatherings including festivals, fish camps, culture camps, general assemblies and kids summer camps.
The Yukon Literacy Coalition is a registered charity and can offer tax receipts for donations. Every dollar helps us get closer to our goal! If you'd like to donate to the Family Literacy Centre on Wheels, please click the 'Donate Now' button. Thank you!
