About Us

Literacy Central was incorporated as the Nanaimo Literacy Association in 1990. We have grown both in catchment area and programs, now offering free tutoring services in Nanaimo, Gabriola Island and Ladysmith. Literacy Central VI, Vancouver Island University and the Advanced Education Ministry of the BC Government partner in providing 3 programs; Adult Literacy Tutoring, Aboriginal Literacy Tutoring, and Family Literacy Tutoring. We also partner with Decoda Literacy Solutions, and two of Nanaimo's Rotary Clubs - North Nanaimo and Daybreak as well as receive assistance from BC Gaming and United Way.

The real strength of our organization is the over 200 highly knowledgeable and dedicated people that volunteer in our programs and bookstore including our Board of Directors.
