Public gathering seeks input on literacy in the Upper Skeena

People living in the Upper Skeena can provide input on community literacy programs at a public gathering on Nov. 24.

Upper Skeena residents are being invited to provide feedback on community literacy and tutoring programs at a public gathering at Kispiox Village tomorrow.

The Storytellers’ Foundation, which is based in Hazelton, aims to challenge assumptions about poverty, literacy and citizenship by engaging people in issues that affect their lives.

By holding a public gathering, the organization hopes to gain a better understanding of the realities of literacy in outlying communities, and to get more people involved in the conversation.

People at the gathering will also have a chance to learn about a community tutoring pilot project planned for Kispiox and Sik-e-Dakh in 2015.

The Upper Skeena Literacy Gathering will be held at the Kispiox Community School from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 24. Dinner will be included.
