Description & Services
Information Mission: 
- VCLA is a non-profit organization that addresses the learning needs of adults who require assistance achieving their personal learning goals. 
- We work with individuals and groups to provide educational programs, advocacy, and information. 
- We believe we can build stronger communities through adult learning. 
- Our guiding mission is to help adults reach their learning goals.  
The Valley Community Learning Association is a non-profit organization that helps adults achieve their personal learning goals. Beginning in Kings County in 1989 as the Kings County Learning Association, we now provide a forum for learners, community groups, instructors, tutors, publicly funded agencies and businesses to enhance the literacy levels of our fellow community members and new immigrants in both Kings and Annapolis Counties. 
The Valley Community Learning Association [VCLA] is governed by a volunteer board of directors, who meet the second Friday of each month from September to June. Meetings alternate between sites in Kings and Annapolis counties. 
VCLA board meetings are open to the public and while only directors can make and vote on motions, members of the community are free to attend and input is welcome.  
VCLA offers several volunteer opportunities within its organization: on the board of directors, as a volunteer tutor, as part of the fundraising committee, or occasionally as a help around the office.
Dates All Year.
