learning and growing


Everything that Valley Community Learning Association (VCLA) does is to make learning and growth happen in our community.

Our mission is to help adults reach their learning goals.

We are building stronger communities through adult learning.

We are creating a supportive and nurturing network within the Annapolis Valley, to help people develop their essential skills so they can improve their own lives and the lives of their children, and so they can participate more fully in their communities.

Our programs are free. We have in-person and online options. We offer classes in the daytime or evenings, and we have one-to-one tutoring, too. Our flexibility means we can help different learners even when they need to balance self-care, work, family and other community commitments.

We want to help our community learn and grow. When the Annapolis Valley community identifies an adult education or learning need, we do what we can to address it. That is why VCLA has programs like:

Adult Basic Education/ GED

English as an Additional Language

Employment Readiness Programs

Community Programs

Food Programs

Our annual Literacy Mile Fundraiser typically takes place on a Saturday in June from 1-3pm
at the VCLA Community Hub at 118 Oakdene Avenue, Kentville, Nova Scotia
