What People Are Saying

"I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I went to the Centre. I knew it was time for me to get some help, and the staff made me feel comfortable right away. The Adult Learning Centre has given me the confidence to see that ‘I can learn’. I guess it’s never too late."

— Gilberte

" These girls were great! They helped me see that I could do whatever I put my mind to. I’ve always had learning problems, but my instructor took the time I needed, and explained things so that I could understand. Couldn’t have done without their help and encouragement. "

— J.E.

"The staff here makes you feel ‘understood’. They go out of their way to help, and guide me in the right direction. I need that support. This is one place where I always know I’ll be treated fairly."

— D.R.

"I’m not sure how other volunteers feel, but I can honestly say that working with a learner has more ups than downs for me. It really feels great when you see “the light go on” on your student’s face and you know you helped flip the switch!"

— Linda
