Have you ever wanted to help families grow and learn together? Do you love the programs of the Prince Albert Literacy Network and have an hour every once in a while to help? See the opportunities below! We can always use extra hands.

Become a Family Literacy Facilitator or Facilitator Assistant:
Facilitators meet weekly with families typically in person (currently online) and lead them through a variety of activities. Assistants work alongside the facilitator ensuring the program goes smoothly. Often times they become facilitators themselves.
