Community Adult Learning Program

The Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education is inviting eligible organizations to apply a two-year probationary Community Adult Learning Program grant funding. Eligible organizations interested in serving foundational learners in Wheatland County may apply.

The Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) provides funding and other supports to over 100 community-based organizations to facilitate part-time, primarily non-formal, adult learning opportunities in communities across Alberta.

Organizations funded through the CALP work towards the following vision:

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. These needs include adult literacy, numeracy, English language learning, basic digital skills, and/or foundational life skills, and can be addressed through group learning such as a class or family literacy program or through one-on-one or small group tutoring.  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/or 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 a probationary period. The deadline for Applications is June 3, 2019, and details on how to apply can be found here.

If you have any questions, please contact Ben Hartt, CALP Grant Manager for the South Region, by email at Ben.Hartt@gov.ab.ca or by phone at 780.427.5625.

Thank you and we look forward to receiving your applications!
