Gary Porter, Adult Learner [Video - 3:00] (2009)

On February 28, 2011, Laubach Literacy Ontario held its second annual Literacy Awareness Day at Queen’s Park, home of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, in Toronto.

This video, recorded that day, features an adult learner describing how he decided at the age of 40 to improve his literacy skills. Although he was successful in his job with the family business and owned a house, there was something missing from his life.

He went to the Barrie Literacy Council in Ontario, where he worked with several tutors. Four years later, he received his General Education Development (GED) certificate.
