Since 2004, Literacy Alberni’s mission has been to ensure we are leaders in providing literacy, education, language, and settlement services to our community. We are committed to respecting, promoting, and advancing the values of equality, equity, diversity, and safety for all peoples.
We provide educational programs and facilitate literacy acquisition in learners of all ages through a range of programs, services, and activities.
Literacy Alberni Society has grown from a two-person organization to one that serves the entire Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District.
In October 2015, the American Library of Congress has recognized Literacy Alberni for best practices in international literacy. Literacy Alberni received an honourable mention from ABC Life Literacy in September 2015 for its exceptional literacy work and for welcoming immigrants into the community through literacy courses.
We are located in the former Mount Klitsa Junior Secondary School. LAS is a tenant of the Jericho Road Church, who now own the school building and grounds. We are located on the unceded territories of the Tseshaht and Hupacasath First Nations, in the City of Port Alberni, BC.
