Community Programs"Creating Pathways to Sustainable Success", for our communities and in our communities



Kwantlen Polytechnic University is pleased to partner with community in delivering a range of transformative programs



Phoenix Kwantlen Learning Centre (PKLC)

Providing needed adult bridging courses and literacy programs in Maths and English, PKLC in central Surrey recently launched a new adult basic education program that uses Aboriginal concepts and materials. Available to youth and adults over the age of 19 years, KPU's instructors at PKLC support those wishing to improve their Math and English skills for access to employment and training opportunities.  

Community Adult Literacy Programs (CALP)

Literacy is defined as the ability to understand and use printed material in daily activities – at home, in the community and at work. Non-profit agencies are partnering with KPU experts to deliver programs across the South Fraser Region to ensure adult newcomers to Canada (live-in caregivers, families, refugees and other high-needs clients) can improve their quality of life, earn sufficient income, participate in their children’s education, understand current events, and enjoy leisure and recreational pursuits. Come join a CALP program near you - in Surrey, Richmond or Langley! 

Third Age Learning at Kwantlen (TALK)

Adults over 50 can broaden their horizons with creative and stimulating educational activities. No tests, no grades - just a lively learning experience!
