Building Community Literacy From The Ground Up (2003)

Since 1996, communities in the Canadian Columbia Basin of British Columbia (East and West Kootenay Regions, Valemount, and Revelstoke) have been planning, developing, and delivering family literacy programs with encouragement and widespread support. During those years, a total of seventeen communities have agreed to work together and to support each other.

This manual relates the story of the development of family literacy programs and the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy. It provides an example of community and program development that may be useful to other communities wishing to build cooperative movements around specific community issues.
