Welcome to the South Shore Reading Council (SSRC)

The South Shore Reading Council is a non-profit volunteer literacy organization located in Longueuil-Greenfield Park on Montreal's South Shore. Based upon our goal to eradicate illiteracy, our philosophy is to individualize our programs to suit each student's individual needs. We strive to serve the surrounding South Shore communities with various reading literacy programs and activities for individuals as well as for families such as; one-on-one tutoring, Mother Goose family literacy program, Seniors program, and Youth & Peer Tutoring. Since we are a not-for-profit volunteer organization, all members of the South Shore Reading Council are volunteers except for the secretary and executive director. The SSRC is administered by a 7 member board committee.

Meeting the Needs of Our Community

Many of our students have gone on to finish their High School education and in a few cases, to take C.E.G.E.P. and University courses.

Parents and grandparents are now able to share the joy of reading to their children and grandchildren.

Learning to read helps to promote self-esteem and confidence in adults who may seek better employment and be able to give more back to their community.

Our Goals

To improve general literacy levels in the community

To co-operate with other literacy groups and programs.

To raise the level of awareness of the community to the need for improved literacy.

To teach basic English reading, writing, numeracy and life skills to youths and adults.
