Volunteering to Build Skills

Gary knew his life had to change when he joined his brother to run a business together, and he realized he was unable to write receipts for his customers. Gary was illiterate. He decided to take control of his education and sought out the Barrie Literacy Council ? an organization compiled entirely of volunteer tutors. Now he?s a client turned volunteer, and is on the Board for the Barrie Literacy Councils, is an eloquent public speaker and a very active advocate.
