Literacy Now Mission Statement: To seek and support a full range of learning projects and programs identified by our communities in the Mount Waddington region so that we become even more resilient. We honour the diversity of our communities by acknowledging, encouraging, and celebrating each community’s vision. Our role is to facilitate that vision by coordinating funding and guiding projects through to completion.

COLLABORATION: We believe connections within communities and acknowledgment of community voice is integral to the success of literacy initiatives.

INCLUSIVITY: We embrace life-long learning that is accessible, cross-cultural, and intergenerational.

RELATIONSHIP: We approach our relations in the community with respect and acceptance.

RESPONSIBILITY: We seek indicators of success and encourage responsibility in our communities.
