In hopes of expanding our current information and referral to our EO partners that specialize in employment preparation, Literacy Link Niagara was been funded by MTCU to conduct some important research.

We wanted to better understand the literacy levels necessary to fully participate in the employment preparation programs offered. This knowledge will help ensure that literacy learners referred to employment programs will be appropriate and more likely to be successful. In the second phase of the project, we worked with partners to develop tools to help learners transition from LBS to Employment and vice versa.
