Lifelong Learning Council of Red Deer

About The Red Deer Learning Council

The Lifelong Learning Council of Red Deer provides leadership in supporting equitable learning and literacy opportunities and removing barriers to both.

We Fund Adult Learning Service Providers

We fund a multitude of programs for adult learners, ranging from English as a second language to foundational skills training.

If you would like to receive funding for your program, we have one granting period per year (July 1st-June 30th) with applications due March 1st.

Our Goals

We Want Adult Learners To SuCceed!

Our Goals Include

  • To advocate for awareness and urgency on program/learning gaps in our community.
  • To convene a “Lifelong Learning Inter-agency” for ongoing networking and enhancing collaboration opportunities for more coordinated efforts.
  • To increase our profile and community’s awareness of what we offer.
  • To diversify our funding so we can broaden our mandate (being mindful of not competing with agencies we fund, but rather enabling agencies we fund to do more by facilitating funding opportunities).

We don’t provide service, we support it!
