As Canada's original literacy organization, Frontier College has been recruiting dedicated volunteers to work with Canadian children, youth and adults from all over Canada since 1899. Our history is rich with stories of Labourer-Teachers working alongside their fellow labourers in mines, lumber camps, railway camps and other remote locations. These Labourer-Teachers worked day and night to help Canada's first newcomers adjust to this wonderful country. Since then, our programs have helped millions of Canadians improve their literacy skills. Visit the History section to learn more about Labourer-Teachers and the early days of Frontier College.
Frontier College operates a variety of literacy programs in locations across Canada. Today, we recruit and train volunteers to work with children, youth and adults in a great array of settings. We also help other community-based organizations set up and run literacy programs for their own participants.
