Darryl came to the program to upgrade for employment purposes. He was unhappy in his current job and knew that to find more fulfilling employment he would need to upgrade his skills. Below, Darryl describes his experience with the program in his own words:
The Literacy Council of Durham Region is very rewarding to me because they have helped me to read and write much better. I entered the program in November and I have no regrets! All of the volunteers took the time to sit with you and make sure you understood what they were teaching you. They have a very unique way of teaching so that at the end of each lesson 99.9% of the time you will have received whatever they are teaching. Thank you to the staff and all the volunteers and keep up the good work!
