Our Vision

Visual of member's hopes and dreams for the AR's future.

Action Read is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the literacy and numeracy skills of adults and families in the city of Guelph.

We believe that learners and tutors are active partners in learning and that learning should be challenging yet enjoyable. We provide opportunities for meaningful engagement for learners, volunteers and staff at Action Read and the larger community.

We are committed to creating an accessible and flexible learning environment where people of all backgrounds feel supported, encouraged and secure. We strive to provide a learner-centred organizational culture based upon compassion and respect that meets diverse learning goals, styles and needs.

Success occurs when learners gain the confidence to use and share their skills in managing their lives and moving on to new challenges.
