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.
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.

How 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.
