About Us

Laubach Literacy New Brunswick (LLNB) is a non-profit, charitable organization whose trained volunteers help New Brunswick adults improve their basic reading, writing and math skills through a free, confidential program. LLNB volunteers work one-to-one with learners, using materials relevant to learners’ literacy levels and daily lives.

 

Laubach Literacy’s ‘Each One Teach One’ philosophy has helped more than 60 million people around the globe learn to read in their own language.

 

The original Laubach instructional program and ‘Each One Teach One’ method were developed by Frank C. Laubach. While working in the Philippines in 1930, the American missionary used the method to teach adults to read and write. Laubach eventually founded Laubach Literacy International (now ProLiteracy), which offers literacy programs in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, the Near East and India.

Laubach Literacy New Brunswick (LLNB) is a committed partner in national and international efforts to help all reach their full literate potential. Dedicated LLNB tutor trainers prepare volunteers who are committed to helping adults improve their reading, writing, math and other life skills. With these skills, individuals can gain self-confidence and greater control over their lives.

 

LLNB is a member of the New Brunswick Adult Literacy and Essential Skills Partnership. The group is committed to strengthening services, strategies and awareness related to adult literacy and essential skills through collaboration.
