Cariboo-Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Society  (CCPL) are community members who are committed to promoting literacy and learning opportunities.  The members are caring volunteers and staff that all have a passion for literacy and lifelong learning.

CCPL helps adults and families to overcome literacy challenges, improving their reading and writing abilities.  We help people to learn how to learn, use computers, fill in forms, manage their money, purse education goals, get connected, gain confidence, improve their English, build book rich homes and much more.

Events like the Annual Family Golf Day bring families together to have fun while playing golf, face painting, attending an interactive story telling and much more.   CCPL Family Golf Day focuses on families learning together, that our parents are our first teachers; kids that read are leaders and learning as a family spells fun!

We need to think of literacy and learning as moving targets, making an effort to continue to learn throughout our lives.  CCPL members believe that learning with your children you will create a closer bond with them.  With continued learning we become better parents, employers, employees, friends and have a much fuller richer life.

If you would like to learn more about CCPL, the programs and services or volunteering with CCPL please call Melody Newcombe at 250-945-4199 or email me at melnewcombe@caribooliteracy.com.
