Agapé Language Centre (ALC) is a non-sectarian, non-profit, registered charitable organization. Agape began in 1997 with the goal to help new immigrants improve their English language skills.
To accomplish this, Agapé Language Centre continues to work with a mix of experienced teachers and volunteers who empower our new neighbors and facilitate their integration into Canadian society in Calgary.
These caring volunteers and trained professionals have worked hard to build a sense of community within our classes.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to help new immigrants improve their English language skills, understand Canadian culture, make new friends, and feel more at home in Canada by providing educational instruction and moral support to those requiring ESL training.
One Agapé student commented that when she attended a parent-teacher interview at her child's school, she felt comfortable talking with the teacher about her child's progress, giving her more confidence to attend these types of meetings.
Recently another Agapé student, a level CLB 5 graduate, was offered an opportunity to train as an electrician. His employer had noticed his strong work skills and English language abilities, confident that he could take on extra responsibility. This was a great opportunity for the student, who had improved his English skills enough to advance in his career.
