Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning
The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning Society was incorporated in 1984. We have been a partner in the Lions Learning Centre since its 2003 opening. The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning is one of 120 organizations across the province of Alberta that address part-time non-formal, and non-credit adult education needs of adults within specific geographic boundaries, especially people with financial or other barriers. We provide adults a pathway to lifelong learning through active leadership, programming and granting funds that are responsive to the community. Adults will enhance their life, literacy, and employ-ability skills.
The Council supports opportunities for individuals to continue their lifelong learning.
The Council for Lifelong Learning is a leader in providing literacy and adult learning programs and services as well as personal opportunities for all adults and families.
Our mandate as a registered society is to provide adult learning programs and services related to employment, literacy, career upgrading, English as an Additional Language (EAL), and public education.
The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning became a registered non-profit society in March 1984. The Council works within the guidelines set by Alberta Learning, Community Adult Learning Program, Policy and Operating Requirements. The Council has been a partner in the Lions Learning Centre since its 2003 opening.
