Learner Information

We partner with community agencies across Calgary to offer free programs for adult learners. Our programs can help you with literacy, reading and writing, parenting, and more.

What does a program look like?

Programs are held in-person at partner agencies' locations and online. Programs run once a week and are usually 10 weeks long. Each program has 5-10 learners in the group. Our facilitators work with you to make sure you are comfortable and your learning needs are met.
