The Community Learning Network provides leadership, resources, and connections to over 80 Community Adult Learning Councils (CALCs) across Alberta.
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 Community Learning Network is governed by a Board of Directors elected from Community Adult Learning Council Staff & Board Members and we work with and are supported by Alberta Advanced Education and Technology.
We believe in possibilities.
We respect diversity.
We value adaptive leadership.
We value honesty, integrity and transparency.
