September Literacy Month

Team RBC and Executive Director Sandra Lee at the team trivia night for Literacy Month
September is Literacy Month in British Columbia!

Each September, Decoda leads a province-wide awareness and fundraising campaign to celebrate Literacy Month.

The campaign highlights the importance of literacy and raises funds to support community-based literacy programs and initiatives across BC.

Our theme is “Literacy connects us!”

At home, at work and in the community … literacy connects us!

Literacy Month in September 2022 raised over $47,000 to support literacy programs in BC. Thank you to our supporters.
