Literacy Link South Central Video Campaign

Literacy: An Essential Skill for Employment

In 2014, Literacy Link South Central hosted a Job Creation Partnership project that focused in part on the crucial role literacy plays in finding and keeping employment. Our Marketing and Outreach team interviewed clients who have moved successfully through literacy programs into employment, met with employment support staff from local agencies to learn about their experiences, and worked with local community leaders to discuss how adult literacy programs can pave the way to successful employment. 

LLSC is pleased to announce the release of a video campaign that showcases employment counsellors and support staff from various local agencies, literacy experts and community leaders sharing their stories about the impact of literacy on their communities. Through this video, we hope to increase partnerships and effective referrals between Employment Services and Literacy and Basic Skills programs.

Literacy Programs Welcome You - Reaching Out to London's Multicultural Communities

The LLSC Job Creation Partnership project also reached out to London's diverse multicultural communities, and share with them the benefits of adult literacy programming. LLSC's Marketing and Outreach team completed several initiatives with support from the following cultural agencies:

  • The African Community Council
  • Latino-London Corporation
  • Canadian Iraqi-Turkmen Culture Association (CITCAL)

The initiatives included:

  • attending and volunteering at local cultural events
  • interviewing learners from various cultural backgrounds
  • hosting multicultural events to gather perspectives and share information
  • working with local community leaders to discuss what adult literacy programs have to offer

As a result of the outreach efforts, the team developed a video campaign that showcases learners from various cultural backgrounds, literacy experts and community leaders sharing their stories about the impact of literacy on their communities. Through this campaign, LLSC hopes to reach out to diverse multicultural communities, welcoming them to attend London's many free adult literacy programs.
