We are funded by the Community Adult Learning Program, under the Advanced Education Ministry. We as Hinton Employment and Learning Place also known as Hinton Adult Learning Society has been operating since 1984 where we provide many opportunities much like the Family Literacy.
HELP has been running Family Literacy Programs since 2017 which focus on the ADULT learner. Primarily on essential skills of the learner such as Oral communication, numeracy, reading, writing, digital technology and more.
Learning alongside children or learning for their children's sake in a safe, non-threatening way and connecting adults to lifelong learning is the ultimate outcome.
Literacy develops in families first! Parents are a child's first and most important teachers, so it is important for a parent to learn many ways of communication and other literacy tips and tricks to help children grow.
