We need you!  The Volunteer Tutor Literacy Program is seeking volunteers.  Are you looking for a chance to help develop the literacy or numeracy skills in an adult learner?  Or an opportunity to give back to our community?  Our program, the VLTP, is based at Okanagan College.  We are needing volunteers to work one on one with adult learners who are wanting to improve their own literacy or numeracy skills.  Your commitment will be 1 to 2 hours per week, with your schedule to be determined by you and your learner.  Tutoring can be done remotely over Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc. or face to face at the college or another public meeting place.  To start, you will attend a short intake meeting, followed by training, and then you can begin meeting with your learner.  If you are interested, please call or email Rene at:

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
