Adult Learning Opportunities


We are a non-profit, charitable organization focused on literacy.  We seek out the cooperation, support and generosity of the community to gather the resources and funding needed to improve literacy.    We provide free academic upgrading to the residents of Lunenburg County up to the Grade 8 level.

Our vision for Lunenburg County residents is strong literacy, an empowered community and enhanced quality of life through lifelong learning.

Our Instructor:

  • Provides a positive atmosphere, confidentiality, trust, mutual respect and encouragement.
  • Works with learners to develop individual learning goals and plans to meet their needs and attain their goals.
  • Respects the life experiences and the unique ways of learning and works with each individual to accommodate the demands of adult life.
  • Focuses on learners and their success.

Our learners: 

  • Develop a sense of empowerment and self-confidence.
  • Incorporate existing knowledge, experience and life skills into their learning plan.
  • Set goals and apply a practical learning method.
  • Access opportunities to accomplish non-academic goals.
  • Learn at own pace.
