Volunteering and Adult Literacy Pathways Survey
ACAL and The Hotline have been contacted by many people who have been energised by Lost for Words and either want to pursue a career in adult literacy or volunteer their time.
We have created a survey so we can capture this interest. We intend to use the results to demonstrate to governments across Australia that the community cares about adult literacy and that if they help provide opportunities to get involved people will step up!
If you are contacted by someone asking how to volunteer or how to work in the field, please encourage them to do this survey.
