PLANT A SEED - GROW A PROGRAM

Through the Literacy Outreach Program, Frontier College provides migrant farm workers in southwestern Ontario with the literacy and basic skills support they need to make a stronger contribution to their workplace and a deeper connection to the communities they live in. During the growing and harvest seasons, Frontier College provides instruction on evenings and weekends to seasonal agricultural workers from Central America and the Caribbean in southwestern Ontario.

By applying the Frontier College “All Welcome” philosophy, Instructors provide classes at farms, large greenhouse operations, churches and libraries that are accessible to the migrant farm workers. We are proud to report that in 2017, over 200 farm workers gained workplace safety, literacy, and numeracy skills through the Frontier College program.

To help us grow the Literacy Outreach Program, we introduce the Plant a Seed – Grow a Program in order to raise important funds to support migrant farm workers each year. These workers are essential to Canada’s food and agricultural system, and we are proud to support them through access to free literacy and language enrichment programming.
