The LEARN Project
Serving the areas of Wainwright, Irma, Chauvin, Edgerton and the M.D. of Wainwright No. 61, the Adult Literacy project in our community is a volunteer based program that matches adult learners with volunteer tutors to work on developing skills in reading, writing, spelling and numeracy. Training for tutors is free; resources and support are available.
Learners are assessed and matched with a tutor and progress of the pair is reviewed on a regular basis. All tutor training is free but please pre-register. See our calendar for training dates. All training occurs in the Adult Learning and Literacy office. Training can be provided in workshops or one-on-one.
