Located in Nova Scotia, the Hants Learning Network Association (HLNA) has been supporting adult learners and families for over twenty years. Our mission is "The Hants Learning Network Association works to improve the lives of residents by promoting lifelong learning and providing opportunities for all to improve their literacy skills in a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment."
We offer free daytime and evening classes and tutoring for adult students who want to improve their reading, writing, math, social studies, science, and computer skills to better their lives, access further education, and increase their employment options. Many of our students did not complete public school or have been away from school for a while and are now seeking to get the education they need for the work force or college. A key feature of HLNA's programs is that our qualified teachers work with students at their own pace to meet their goals.
In addition to our adult programs, we offer free family literacy programs in partnership with our local public school board. Our facilitators work with adults and children together to make learning fun for the whole family.
This year Hants Learning Network Association was pleased to receive a Building Vibrant Communities grant to expand our services and provide free tutoring for elementary school students.
Current Fundraising Initiative:
We want to be able to continue to be able to offer free learning programs in our community and need your help to be successful. In particular, we are raising funds to purchase resources and supplies for the programs, replace aging equipment such as computers and whiteboards, and to get the word out about what we do so we can help more people learn.
Your support will help more community members learn for free! Thank you.
