What We Do
Community Adult Learning & Literacy Society (CALLS) is a non-profit organization funded by the Government of Alberta. We offer learning opportunities to adult residents in Fort Saskatchewan and Strathcona County.
Our programming focuses on adult learners who face barriers getting into learning opportunities. We offer classes and volunteer led activities for adults who are either learning English or struggle with reading and writing in their daily life. We also offer classes for adults facing health challenges and disability. We focus on improving access to learning for adult with economic barriers.
CALLS also funds other community organizations who provide learning opportunities in the following four areas.
- Adult Basic Literacy
- English as a Second Language
- Community Issues
- Employability Enhancement
