GALA/Shamrock Nutrition Project
Plan a series of menus which would be prepared by groups of seniors, with a focus on healthy eating and certain health issues.
PLAYS (Prioritizing Learning and Youthful Seniors)
GALA will work with the Seniors Along the Bay Club to explore reading, writing, and producing dramatic plays. We will work with this seniors group to increase club participation, be more visible in the community, and to be recognized as a place where seniors can learn new things, make new friends, reduce isolation, have fun, and improve their well being.
(Special Program to Educate, Entertain, and Develop Young Families)
GALA will provide an educational and entertaining program for parents of school age children by combining LII curriculum activities with technology. Exciting, interactive Communications activities will be distributed by hand to families in our programs and will be posted on line for others who are having limited success with ALP participation and who indicate that they need family literacy services. Families will make inquiries about the activities and additional support will be provided through provision of resources, demonstrations, and additional teaching.
FACES (Families Adding Culture to Essential Skills)
GALA will conduct research to gather and organize information that has cultural relevance for Guysborough County’s family literacy program participants. We will develop an activity model, and pilot the model with families currently enrolled in adult learning and family literacy programs.
PGI Technology Grant
GALA will support adult learners and establish a computer lab and technology.
