Raise-a-Reader Week

It’s Raise-a-Reader Week!  The Raise-a-Reader campaign was created by the Vancouver Sun in 1997 to support literacy work by helping to increase awareness and raise money for family literacy programs in BC.

Decoda is proud to partner with the Vancouver Sun and the Province of British Columbia on Raise-a-Reader.

This week also showcases the variety of literacy programs that this funding supports. From Mother Goose to literacy in the kitchen to English language learning and more, read some of the stories here.
