Crowsnest Pass Adult Education Association - Dedicated to lifelong learning

Our mission is to provide equal opportunities for quality, lifelong learning and literacy for adults in the Crowsnest Pass.  
The Crowsnest Pass Adult Education Association is your community's connection to adult learning.  Whether it's providing literacy, proficiency, improving established skills or acquiring new ones, we're here to help you on your path to further knowledge.

We support literacy and education for adults of all ages and backgrounds by offering individual tutoring or group programs including Adult Literacy, Numeracy, Skills for Learning, Basic Digital Skills, and English Language Learning.  As well, we aid with document use, General Education Development (GED) Equivalency preparation, resume support and workplace requirements such as Standard First Aid.  If you, your group or your business are looking for assistance with any area of education, we want to hear from you.



CROWSNEST PASS ADULT LITERACY PROGRAM provides one-on-one and small group learning opportunities that support the development of literacy, numeracy, skills for learning, basic digital skills, and/or English language learning.  Learning opportunities help foundational adult learners improve their reading, writing, math, use of technology, and communication skills, while developing the skills and habits needed to achieve their learning goals. 


From September to June, trained volunteer Literacy Coaches (tutors) provide learning opportunities that support the literacy goals identified by learners.  Tutoring is offered weekly, in one to two hour sessions, at a convenient time and public meeting place mutually agreed upon by both learners and tutors.  


Making the choice to improve your skills, or to help others meet their literacy goals, can be life changing.
