Barriers to Youth in Acquiring Literacy Assistance (1997)

The research project described in this document investigated barriers to attaining literacy training with a sample of low literacy youth (aged 16 to 25 years) from both urban and rural settings in Southwestern Ontario. The study found six identifiable factors as barriers, and found that the reasons for nonparticipation in literacy training programs were multidimensional. The report includes a literature review, the research questions, discussion of the findings, an analysis of how the findings compare with similar studies done by Beder, Hayes, and Darkenwald, and discussion of how the findings could inform a literacy campaign for youth.
