It Guided Me Back to Learning (1999)

A Longitudinal Research Study on Calls to the Literacy B.C. Helpline

This study was designed to document who calls the Literacy BC helpline and why they want to improve their literacy skills. What do their motivations and goals tell us about the role of literacy in society, in the economy, and in their personal lives? The study was also designed to examine what happens after they call. Do callers access and participate in the programs we help them to locate? If not, what stopped or prevented them?
