Literacy

A taste for reading, an asset for life

Learning to read is a fundamental factor in educational success.

In order to develop their full potential, young people must learn to love reading and to use reading as a springboard for all other learning. A love of reading is a priceless gift that will determine a student’s commitment to school and their level of perseverance in all areas of their lives.

Regional literacy action plan 2020-2023

In 2020, R3USSIR adopted a regional literacy action plan to develop the literacy skills of young people and their families by consolidating the synergy of regional and local players. To do this, six projects were prioritized and six committees were set up to bring them to life, according to the following objectives:

  1. Raise awareness and engage stakeholders whose primary role is not to develop literacy skills in the community
  2. Prioritize the value of libraries and expand their reach
  3. Increase opportunities for families to interact with the written word
  4. Increase the number of initiatives aimed at teens
  5. Reinforce parents’ motivation and sense of competence in developing their children’s literacy skills
  6. Increase the capacity of stakeholders to act

Regional literacy committee

In order to promote, increase and maintain interest in reading among 0-20 year olds and their parents, R3USSIR coordinates and facilitates a working committee on literacy, composed of 20 partners from different backgrounds.
