Community Colleges in Literacy Partnerships that Work

Community colleges call on organizations to find out how to best meet needs of adult literacy students. Businesses call on educational institutions to help them design literacy courses for their employees. These partnerships allow each organization to benefit from the expertise of the other.

This document outlines six such partnerships between community colleges and other organizations:
1. New Brunswick Community College and the Correctional Service of Canada
2. George Brown College and the Labour Council of Metropolitan Toronto and York Region
3. Red River Community College, the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities, and the Winnipeg Community Centre of the Deaf
4. Keyano College, Fort McMurray, and Syncrude Canada Limited
5. Capilano College and the Neil Squire Foundation
6. Douglas College, communities, libraries and community agencies

These six case studies illustrate a variety of characteristics that can help to make a literacy partnership work.
