About Us
Literacy Society of the North Okanagan

The Literacy Society of the North Okanagan began as the Literacy and Youth Initiatives Society of the North Okanagan in 2007 and operated both the Junction Literacy Centre and Teen Junction Youth Centre.

In 2017, the management of Teen Junction Youth Centre was turned over to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club, and the newly named Society moved their offices to the People Place.

This was a win-win. The Literacy Society could focus on literacy services, and the Youth Centre had a new level of support to help grow and develop as a safe place for teens in our community.
