Partnering for Literacy Programs
Authors: Mary Norton
Collection: Research Materials
The Community-Based Literacy (CBL) in NE Edmonton project was initiated in September 2006 to address needs for adult literacy programming that had been identified through the Widening Access for Adult Literacies project.
The project’s goal was to work with agencies to offer literacy courses in the short term, and to support community agencies applying for regular course funding to offer courses on a longer-term basis.
This document describes what was learned during the project about partnering with community-based agencies to offer literacy programming. It also includes excerpts from the report to Edmonton Community Adult Learning Association (ECALA), which provided funding for the CBL project.
