|Providing a vibrant learning community.|
|Community Adult Learning Councils address the part-time, non-credit learning needs of adults within specified geographic boundaries. Currently over 80 in number, these unique councils consist of representatives of the local community who work together to meet the program goals:
* To improve the accessibility of learning opportunities in Alberta's communities, especially for those individuals with special needs or barriers to learning.
* To provide opportunities for Albertans to acquire important foundational skills such as literacy and English as a Second Language.
* To address education, training and learning gaps in Alberta's communities.
* To mobilize community volunteers and other resources in support of learning.
* To contribute to solving individual and community problems through learning initiatives, in coordination and cooperation with related organizations.
|The Slave Lake Adult Education Committe is part of the Community Learning Network. The Community Learning Network (CLN) is a provincial not-for-profit organization that provides leadership, resources, and connections to Alberta's 80 Community Adult Learning Councils (CALCs), their staff and boards of directors. The CLN works with Alberta Advanced Education and Technology to enable Councils to address the adult learning needs in the communities they serve.|
