Incorporated in 1994, Shelburne County Learning Network is a non-profit registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning (NSSAL) Programs are offered. NSSAL programs are overseen and funded through the Department of Labour, Skills. and Immigration. Financial support is also provided through various Literacy Nova Scotia grants and other grant opportunities. Thanks to the aforementioned funding sources, all programs and supplies are provided at no cost to learners.
Ultimately, learners seek programming to increase their essential skills (reading, writing, math, computer literacy, personal development) to further their educational goals, better their employment opportunities or for personal satisfaction. Many learners enroll to prepare for GED testing or to complete levels 1-3 of the Adult Learning Program. Adult Learning Program learners may choose to later enroll in Level 4 at NSCC to complete the program. Shelburne County Learning Network learners must be over the age of 18 years and no longer attending school.
It’s been a very long road but I am extremely grateful for all the help and support I have received. It’s been 2 years since I left the Learning Network, and I still receive endless amounts of support from them with everything I do.
