Family Literacy Program

Family literacy programs funded by the Community Adult Learning Program prioritize the delivery of intentional activities that build adults’ skills and promote the values and benefits of literacy for the entire family. In required programming, family literacy programs provide adult learners with opportunities to increase their own literacy and foundational skills that also enhance daily literacy practices for all family members.

Programs and services of the Community Adult Learning Program are made possible with funding support from Alberta Advanced Education.
