Literacy programs

We firmly believe that literacy is a basic human right for every Canadian, and it is our responsibility to support our young readers.

Literacy has the power to transform lives, combat poverty, enhance labour market participation, and contribute to health and sustainable development. By empowering young learners, we create a ripple effect of positive change that impacts both individuals and society as a whole.

Give it a Shot!

In our longest running program, students from kindergardten through grade six earn literacy collector cards for logging reading minutes. These cards are powerful incentives that empower students to develop their literacy skills and unlock new levels of knowledge and imagination.

for Kids

We are taking our literacy program to new heights by donating books to select schools in Alberta. This addition allows us to empower even more young learners by providing the essential tools they need to uplift their literacy skills and unlock the boundless joy of reading.

We invite you to donate to our Give the Gift of Literacy campaign

One in four Canadian households do not have access to books. Unfortunately, the need for books often takes a back seat to other pressing demands, such as groceries, rent, or winter boots. That is why we invite you to join our Give the Gift of Literacy  campaign. Your contribution will help us put books in the hands of those who need them, opening new doors of possibilities for the next generation. 

Thanks to the Calgary Flames Foundation, your donation is matched dollar-for-dollar, instantly doubling your impact and helping even more students receive the gift of literacy.

Join us and Give the Gift of Literacy  today. Together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of our young learners and our communities.
