Our Mission

READ Saskatoon has a long history as a local literacy organization that offers free literacy services to adults and families.

Established in 1979, READ Saskatoon creates opportunities and transforms the lives of community members through free, proven literacy programs delivered in partnership with trained volunteers, and like-minded organizations.



We Believe:

  • We believe everyone has the right to learn, regardless of age.
  • We believe strong literacy skills are not attained by chance.
  • We believe communities have a right to responsive and effective literacy programs.
  • We believe lifelong learning habits contribute to strong and resilient communities.
  • We believe our own cultural perspectives are limited and therefore we will not make assumptions about the experiences and cultural expressions of others.
