Programs

Our primary responsibility is to support and enhance existing programs, but we also deliver programs where appropriate.

For example, we have One To One programs in many of our area elementary schools. We can support them best by providing regular tutor training sessions, helping School Coordinators access the materials and information they need, gathering data, and securing funding to help pay for it all.

Last year, we partnered with the Penticton and District Community Resources Society to pilot projects for grandparents. Through the Connecting Generations project, we provided funding for two programs: The Grandparent Project at Outma Sqilx'w Cultural School, and the Penticton Museum and Archives partnered with us to host Grand Times at the Museum.

Our ongoing Employer Recognition Program recognizes the efforts of employers who use innovative ideas and sheer determination to reduce barriers for adults with low literacy skills.
