Your Local Adult Learning Network for Pathway Planning

We are your first stop when it comes to planning and finding the right program for your goals.  The Adult Basic Education Association exists to improve the quality of life in the community of Hamilton through the promotion and support of lifelong learning.  As a learning network, we don’t deliver any programs.  Instead, we help you navigate the various options out there.

Do you need to upgrade your skills to get a job? Or, do you have educational goals and you don’t know where to start?

We can discuss your options and help you develop a plan that is right for you!  There are free adult upgrading programs across the city.

Call us today! 905-527-2222
