About Us

WHO WE ARE

WE ARE

Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre (APNLC) is an adult learning centre located in downtown Toronto. APNLC offers a variety of free learning programs including Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) and Academic Upgrading (AU) classes, as well as one-to-one tutoring delivered with the support of volunteer literacy tutors.

These programs offer adult learners the opportunity to upgrade their skills and knowledge to prepare for college programs, apprenticeships and employment. We also support adult learners to become more engaged with their communities and to develop important skills for everyday life.

All programs are free.

OUR MISSION

APNLC is committed to working alongside adult learners to meet their goals of enhanced independence, employment, apprenticeship, or post-secondary education.

OUR HISTORY

APNLC was founded in the mid-eighties to meet the literacy needs of people in the community. In the early days, literacy groups ran out of a small house in the Alexandra Park neighbourhood. After nearly 20 years on Denison Avenue, APNLC moved down the street to the Scadding Court Community Centre, and remains at Scadding Court to this day. Participants in APNLC’s literacy programs benefit from learning in a vibrant environment where people from all walks of life come together to share, learn and grow.

WHO WE WORK WITH

APNLC offers programs to adults over the age of 18 who are committed to reaching their learning goals. To learn more about our different programs or to find out how to join the APNLC community, please read the Programs page.
