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
