The Program Planning Committee of the Georgina Community Resource Centre (G.C.R.C.) formed the Learning Centre for Georgina in March 1985. The project was originally a branch of the Newmarket Council, now known as Literacy Council York Simcoe, and came under the wing of G.C.R.C. to be able to access government funds. In October 1985, a community sounding was held to determine the need and support for the program. In February 1986, a Laubach Trainer from Newmarket delivered the first tutor training.
The organization underwent several changes and moves with a pivotal partnership made with Seneca College in 2007 allowing us to offer non-credit college preparatory classes in English, Math, Biology and Chemistry. We made the decision to amalgamate all programs so that we could offer more learners assistance in our now much larger space that we moved to in 2017, this was possible due to the courtesy of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
To offer high quality training that assists individuals to improve their essential literacy and numeracy skills for workplace and personal successes.
The Learning Centre for Georgina is a centre of excellence that fosters lifelong learning in our community.
