Literacy at Work
The Aboriginal Literacy Foundation is thrilled to announce a new program developed specifically for adults in the workforce. Literacy at Work will see ALF tutors providing one-to-one assistance to employees at locations around Victoria, who are struggling with literacy.

Participants in the program are often productive and capable workers - and highly valued by their employers - but feel held back by their literacy ability. Their concerns may range from reading and understanding written instructions to knowing best professional practices in an office environment.

The program began in the Melbourne suburb of Sunshine this week and we hope we can expand to more locations in the near future.

While our focus will remain on the literacy needs of children, we believe this is an important initiative to help Indigenous men and women stay in the workforce and have every chance of building a successful career.

CEO's Message
We've had an excellent month at the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. We have established our new after school Homework Club in Hamilton and we are about to make similar arrangements in Bairnsdale.

These programs play a vital role in helping Indigenous students maintain their literacy standards in higher primary and lower secondary school. Maintaining literacy standards is vital: Indigenous children who reach the same level of academic success by the age of 15 are just as likely of pursuing higher education or vocational training.

This month we have also started a new literacy program for adults. Literacy at Work is designed to support Indigenous people in the workforce. The program will support people in several locations, including Ballarat and Sunshine and we hope to bring the program to other locations in the near future.

Once again, I thank all everyone who supported the ALF during our recent end of financial year campaign. It is greatly appreciated.

Very best wishes,

Tony Cree CEO
