Adult Spelling Bee 2016 – Coming Up – BEE there!

Literacy London’s 4th Annual Adult Spelling BEE will be UNBEELIEVABLY Fun!

We promise you that this year’s event will be better than ever!  If you thought past years have been great, then hold on to your socks.  We have a larger venue, a hot meal and a full service bar.

There will BEE many prizes, games, and a Silent Auction where you can get all of your Christmas shopping done.   It all takes place on Friday, November 18, 6 p.m. at the Polish Combatants’ Hall on Ann Street.

Join the Literacy London board, learners, volunteers and staff in raising funds to help adults in our community who have made the commitment to improve their literacy skills.  Check out the Events page to find out how you can get involved.

Working Together

Working Together

Stay a while and take a look around! All the information you need to know about our grassroots, non-profit organization, including our programs and how to volunteer or support us is at your finger tips. We’re neighbours helping neighbours to become fulfilled, engaged citizens of the London community through one-on-one literacy and numeracy training.

Though Canada is among the most prosperous countries in the world, low adult literacy is a problem in our country. Adult Canadians who have low literacy skills are more likely to be unemployed, unhealthy, use substances or be involved in crime.

The quotes from our students, displayed on many pages of this site, are testaments to the difference literacy training can make in a person’s life.

Support Us

Literacy London couldn’t run without the dedication of our volunteers and the financial support of the London community. We’re always looking for people to volunteer and support us in helping London residents achieve their personal and career goals.

By clicking on the blue Canada Helps button above the menu on the left, you can make a secure online donation quickly and easily.

Behind the logo

ll_headerHow do you like our logo and slogan that appear on the banner of this web site?  You’ll see them on our letterhead, on posters, on our brochures and on just about anything else we can think of putting them on. The orange box, a transitional colour, makes us think of the optimism with which our students look to their future. The figure embedded in the orange block is happily in motion, springing toward the accomplishment of goals — a better life! Look hard and you’ll see the image is also that of an open book and an open laptop computer.  And our slogan, “uplifting lives”,  is what improved literacy does.  Improved literacy can transform lives for the better, lifting them up from isolation, frustration, and not enough options.   ”Uplifting Lives” is what we hope to continue to do with the help of all our supporters, our volunteers, and most importantly, the hard work and dedication of our students.
