Project Highlights
The Learning Garden

In the summer of 2021, the Yukon Literacy Coalition developed and built a Learning Garden adjacent to the Pioneer Hotel in Shipyards Park in Whitehorse. It was built with guidance from Master Gardeners Agnes Seitz, Gertie Scharrer, Randy Lewis and Marc Boulerice. The garden will provide an opportunity for people to learn about planting, maintaining and harvesting a garden. The vision is to have family literacy programming, workshops for adults, and teachings about traditional healing plants.

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!
