We have a management board that meets six to eight times a year. This group of volunteers oversees the Community learning programs. If you are interested in being on our committee, please call Colleen at 780-623-2477 for more information.
Volunteers can help with short or long term projects such as the Stone Soup Food Centre, Seniors’ Connection, Seniors’ Communication, Community Bookshelves and Welcome Baby. They can also drop in as guests to interact with learners in the English conversation classes.
Volunteers can help in planning and preparing or in running an event such as Opening World of Words (October) and Family Literacy Day (January). We also need volunteers to help us fund raise by working at the Festival of Speed (February), Festival of Trees (November) and during Legion Steak Night (Fridays).
