I live in Parkdale, Toronto so Parkdale Project Read (PPR) is my local community-based adult literacy program. Since 1990 I have worked with the organization developing projects, and volunteering. PPR has partnered on many of my larger research and practice projects.
PPR puts the issue of learning and violence at the forefront of its work, recognizing that most students have experienced violence and will learn better in an environment which recognizes and addresses this challenge.
PPR always welcomes new students and volunteer tutors. They are often looking for donations of furniture, office supplies, and other resources.
