Community Adult Learning Program Call for Applications
The Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education is inviting eligible organizations to apply for ongoing Community Adult Learning Program grant funding. Eligible organizations interested in serving foundational learners in the Town of Peace River may apply.
The Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) provides funding and other supports to 121 community-based organizations to facilitate part-time, primarily non-formal, adult learning opportunities in communities across Alberta.
Organizations funded through the CALP aim towards a vision of:
Changing lives through adult foundational learning in connected communities.
To make this vision a reality, funded organizations serve as visible access points for learners who have literacy and foundational learning needs, including adult literacy, numeracy, English language learning, basic computer skills, and foundational life skills. Organizations are often the local learning hub in a community: in addition to providing adult foundational learners with access to learning opportunities, organizations work collaboratively with community partners to be able to give learners the information, referrals, and other supports they require to be successful in meeting their personal learning and employment goals.
Eligible organizations that have an interest in working towards the program’s vision are invited to apply for Community Adult Learning Program grant funding on an ongoing basis. The deadline for Applications is March 15, 2018, and details on how to apply can be found here.
