Community Literacy of Ontario (CLO) is delighted to have produced this toolkit to accompany the Literacy Volunteers: Value Added Research Report. During the extensive research phase of this project, CLO determined that Ontario’s community literacy agencies need materials to support them in their role as volunteer managers. The research report clearly showed the value of literacy volunteers, not only from a monetary perspective, but also from the societal value that they provide. It is extremely important that literacy agencies have tools that not only help them to recruit volunteers, but tools that help them to support and maintain volunteers as they are clearly an extremely valuable resource.
It is CLO’s sincere hope that Ontario’s community literacy agencies will find the material in this kit useful and beneficial as they strive to thrive in their continually changing environment.
CLO would like to thank everyone who helped to make this toolkit a reality.
