Helping Families Learn is Everyone's Business: An Employer's Guide to Family Literacy in the Workplace (2010)

This document and its companion practitioner’s guide argue that the cycle of poor literacy skills can be broken only through programs that simultaneously address the literacy needs of parents and their children. The author notes that employees who participate in family literacy programs in the workplace gain the confidence to re-enter the learning system themselves.

The author has included examples of workplace family literacy projects and factors for employers to consider before starting such a project. Document appendices provide definitions of terms pertaining to literacy and essential skills; information about family literacy programs in Alberta; and a sample interest inventory.
