Community Service Providers as Literacy Facilitators: a Pilot Project (1998)

This article describes a pilot project conducted with 20 community service providers that included health, social, and other professional workers from an inner-city area in one of Canada's capital cities. The goals of the project were (a) to explore a range of community service providers' perspectives on literacy; (b) to determine if six hours of training in family literacy development strategies modified community service providers' understanding of literacy acquisition; and (c) to examine how community service providers, as a result of the training, incorporated literacy events for the families they serve in their professional practice.
