STeP123 Literacy program

STeP123 is a Salvation Army initiative creating awareness of the importance of literacy in everyday life.

The focus of the initiative is on those in the community who do not have the ability or opportunity to access literacy programs. However, others with low levels of literacy in the wider community are also being supported through community partnerships and referral pathways.

The Salvation Army recognises the importance of early childhood learning together with the opportunity for parents, or carers, to learn with their children. The Salvation Army also recognises the understanding and respect required for teenage and adult learners. We are all individuals, at different places in our lives, and with different goals, therefore different approaches to learning will be relative and more successful for each person.

Who this service is for

The Salvation Army STeP123 Literacy is currently implementing the Reading Together program in the Huon Valley Primary School communities and in Term 2 2023 have expanded the program to the local Primary Schools in the Derwent Valley area.

With the aim to expand our reach in primary schools throughout the greater Hobart region.

The Salvation Army STeP123 program is looking for volunteers who have an interest in reading and would be able to help children, on a weekly basis, develop and increase their own literacy skills.

Volunteers are needed in both the Huon and Derwent Valley communities. If this is of interest to you, or someone you know, please contact Suzanne on 0457 763 796 or by email
