About Frontier College:
Frontier College (FC) has promoted literacy across Canada since 1899. What was once a frontier organization, staffed by labourers working by day and teaching by night, has evolved into a nationwide organization focused on literacy programs for children, youth, and adults. FC offers programs to inner-city schools, public housing sites, jails, farms, and reserves across Canada. In F2015, FC worked with 25,342 participants, distributed 104,453 books across Canada and assisted 6,124 kids in Aboriginal Summer Literacy Camps.
Frontier College recruits and trains volunteers to assist in programs such as reading circles, homework clubs, one-on-one tutoring, ESL programs for immigrants, and programs to get youth off the streets. In F2015, 2,500 volunteers gave 52,177 hours. As well, FC worked with over 400 community partners across the country.
FC also offers Beat the Street, a program designed to help marginalized, street-involved youth who have not completed high school a way back into the educational system. Beat the Street worked with 143 youth in F2015, providing literacy, GED preparation, and computer skills training, with 105 students completing the program.
