Setting the Course for Success: Workplace Literacy Skills Training at The Ark (2005)

This case study by The Conference Board of Canada (http://www.conferenceboard.ca) focuses on the Ark/Lunenburg County Association for the Specially Challenged, a small community organization based on the south shore of Nova Scotia that provides services for persons with special challenges, including intellectual and physical disabilities and mental illness. Ark programs combine training with financial sustainability through the operation of a craft and woodworking workshop and retail store run mainly by participants. Over the years, the organization's programs have expanded to include basic life skills, literacy, numeracy and computer skills training. This study looks at the organization's objectives, target groups served, activities, innovations, keys to success, and suitability as a model.
