Jan. 6 was the first day for the adult literacy class for First Nations Adults at the Friendship Centre (Hiiye’yu Lelum). It was a small group to start with but they are anticipating that it will grow to 17-18 adults.
The first class was earlier in January. Adult Ed’s David Bellis is thrilled with the idea.
These are young adults that have not traditionally come to the adult learning centre nor yet to other programs.
It’s a reaching out to a new group and they’re hoping to be able to expand it to numeracy and other subject areas once they hook them, Rhodes said.
