More than 4,000 books donated into the community

Mission Literacy in Motion programs are free to all

Everyone has the right to learn, to read, and to have an opportunity to perfect his or her reading skills and Mission Literacy in Motion supports that reading mandate.

This year, the organization has donated more than 4,000 books into the community. The recipients are across the whole spectrum of the community, from babies to seniors.

Mission Literacy in Motion programs are all free.

• Preschool programs:

These programs are held in conjunction with many community partners such as the Mission Early Childhood Development Committee, MLiM Family Literacy Committee, Mission Community Services: Child Care Resource and Referral, and Tree House, the Stó:lo Nation’s Aboriginal Family Place and Mission Friendship Centre Society.

• Celebrate student achievements at the District of Mission schools:

Every year. MLiM hosts or takes part in literacy events at different elementary schools, where they distribute free books. In the elementary school program parents and children who take part in the “Ready, Set, Learn” Early Years programming receive books. In an effort to celebrate each student’s transition from elementary to middle school, every student is offred a book, in an effort to recognize their achievement.

• After school programs:

Programming includes the Homework Club, Coder Dojo, and Reading Buddies. Books are shared with members of the Homework Club, young people that attend Coder Dojo sessions and the Little Buddies and Big Buddies that participate in the Reading Buddies program.
