Project Adult Literacy is an adult learning program located in downtown Edmonton just off Jasper Avenue. We have about students and volunteer tutors working in 3 programs: reading and writing, math and ESL literacy. Classes are held during the daytime, evenings and on weekends as most of our students are working full time to support their families and cannot attend classes full time. Lessons and materials are free. We are a foundational literacy program that begins with pre-reading but works up to a junior high level.

Their focus is on assisting families in their attempts to improve their literacy skills by developing and delivering family and adult literacy programs, providing training to family literacy professionals in Alberta and across the country, working in partnership with other organizations to provide inter-agency support fo families. Edmonton Community Adult Learning Association develops, coordinates, and provides life long learning opportunities while acknowledging that adults bring a wealth of experience to their learning.
