Further Education Society of Alberta (FESA) is a registered charitable organization located in Calgary, serving people in Canada who are striving to overcome social, economic, and educational barriers and focusing on learners with the lowest levels for literacy and education. FESA works nationally to build the literacy and essential skills of foundational learners through; partnership building and community development; direct educational program delivery; training and skill building for community workers; and research and curriculum development. Our educational programs are free and offer assistance to vulnerable learners from a variety of backgrounds.
2016 marks FESA's 20th Anniversary Strengthening Communities, Individuals and Families through Literacy and Learning!
FESA is pleased to announce that its 20th Anniversary Campaign, in support of its Birdies for Kids fund, more than doubled last year’s fundraising total! Thank you to all who helped us reach our goal to positively impact more than 400 vulnerable families through our Books for Babies/Jumpstart and Parent-Child Mother-Goose free educational programs.
December 22, 23, and 24th, FESA is fundraising at Cowboy’s Casino. Due to the busy time of year, volunteers are desperately needed to work scheduled shifts at the Casino. Casino proceeds will be used in support of FESA’s mission to help strengthen communities, families and individuals, through literacy and learning.
