The Literacy Council of P.E.I. is two years old, with chapters in Charlottetown and Summerside. The council has sponsored several workshops to train volunteers in the Laubauch teaching method. This method emphasizes a one-to-one teaching relationship; its motto is "Each one teach one".
The Council, in the course of its growth, made a presentation to the Technical Subcommittee of the Joint Federal-Provincial Manpower Needs Committee. This presentation is dated May, 1978. The Council also has a newsletter; the first edition was published April, 1979.
The aim of the Literacy Council, as stated in the presentation, is to combat both functional and total illiteracy. Adults are the prime target group of the Council's program. Adult night classes, sponsored by the Council, are based on the "each one teach one" process.
Holland College has helped the Literacy Council in training volunteers to teach reading and writing and as of May, 1978, forty to fifty people had been trained.
This organization no longer exists.
