About DALA

The Digby Area Learning Association (DALA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the provision of education and career upgrading opportunities for people in Digby and surrounding communities. DALA is currently governed by a 15 member volunteer Board of Directors composed of community minded volunteers and professionals with a variety of expertise. In support of the Board, as Ex-Officio members, we also have representation from four of our partners. DALA employs an Executive Director who assists the Board in administering the various programs.

DALA operates the Digby Community Education Centre (offering adult education programs) and the Learning Grove Childcare Centre (offering early childhood education and childcare programs).

In addition to operating these centres, DALA continuously offers a number of other programs dedicated to improving literacy, including Family Literacy, along with programs designed to assist individuals with barriers to employment, such as the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers.

DALA is self-governed by its own set of bylaws and holds an Annual General Meeting in November.
