About Literacy Lambton

Headquartered in the Lochiel Kiwanis Community Centre in the heart of Sarnia’s downtown district, Literacy Lambton’s mission is to create and deliver exceptional literacy learning opportunities for the residents of Lambton County.

We help adults 19+ improve their reading, writing, math, basic computer skills and digital knowledge through one-to-one, in-person, or synchronous virtual learning; and offer FREE in-person family literacy outreach programs. Our service is amplified by passionate volunteers, from our governance Board to our frontline program.
