Established in 1985, under the leadership of Dr. John Savage, The Dartmouth Learning Network Society provides opportunities for adults and their family members to improve reading, writing, math, communication, document use, computer use, teamwork and critical thinking skills, in addition to helping them gain a love of life-long learning.

We offer programs for:

Adults, 19 years of age and older looking to gain new skills, their adult high school diploma, their General Education Development (GED) equivalency.

 Adults, 19 years of age and older looking for help to gain employment

 Adults with learning differences or challenges looking to gain new skills

 Parents, caregivers, childcare centres and community members looking to ensure children achieve success in school.

The Dartmouth Learning Network Community Learning Team is made up of a small compliment of staff (four full-time and three part-time), supported by over 40 trained volunteers. We work with people 1-1, in small groups and classroom settings and at our location on Wyse Road and at partner sites throughout Halifax Regional Municipality. Our volunteers provide $104,000 in unpaid service to the Dartmouth Learning Network every year.

The Dartmouth Learning Network Community Learning Team is dedicated to helping raise the aspirations and abilities of Nova Scotians looking to improve opportunities in life for themselves and their children.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
