Multicultural Intergenerational Life and Essential Skills (MILES) Program

About

The Multicultural Intergenerational Life and essential Skills (MILES) program is for  families with children aged 3 to 5 years old. We play games, sing songs, and read stories together. You can meet new families and improve your speaking, reading, and writing. You will learn new skills and tools that you can use every day to help your child grow and learn. Your child will make new friends and learn English before they go to kindergarten. 

Recipients receive targeted support to acquire and build on foundational skills, enabling participants to be active and engaged members of the community. 

  • Weekly adult learning workshops and activities that focus on skill development and learning about community and life in Calgary
  • Referrals (as needed)
  • Support accessing Calgary resources
  • Literacy materials (books, activity sheets, etc.)
