FUN it was - all week long! The fourth annual Karaoke Idol was a smashing success, the annual Book Swap drew volunteers and community members, and our local newspaper covered some of the highlights. See the first article (Adult Learners' Week celebrates lifelong learning) for specific information about why we celebrate Adult Learners, and what it is like to be one.
Our programs would not be the same without the contributions of our community volunteers. We greatly appreciate your time and energy, and provide the support and training necessary to ensure you enjoy your experience with us. We have many types of volunteer opportunities, which you will find listed on the volunteer application. At this time, we are specifically recruiting for adult tutors.
Our tutoring program assists adult learners and continuing education students. Differing from our workshops, this program is student-driven, and focuses on the current material each student is working through. As a result, tutors are not expected to develop courses or study plans. We offer tutoring for three essential life skills: reading and writing, math, and computer skills.

Family Literacy Day - What a great way to start the year!
We teamed up with the Jeffery Hale Community Services, and had a delightful, cozy event with the Take-A-Break parents. Our volunteer, Danielle, gave a great dramatic reading demonstration, a couple of lucky parents won gift certificates to support their family reading habits! We also shared some "reading ideas" pamphlets, which provide book suggestions for children ages birth-4. See below for PDF versions of these hand-outs.
Travellin' Toddler Time - A Morning That Counts!
The 2012 Toddler Time season kicked off with a February session here at QCRC. We had a "full crowd", and enjoyed the numbers theme thoroughly - counting blind mice and farm animals in our stories, and making Valentine's mice as the craft. We had a handful of great volunteers, and even one new one!
The next TTT session at QCRC is in May. See the file below to download the full schedule.
We have a solid cohort of tutor-student pairs this spring, including several continuing from last autumn. We are currently seeking tutors for math, reading and writing, and computer skills (particularly Microsoft programs like Excel, Word and Powerpoint). Please contact us today, if you would like to volunteer!
Did you know...?
QCRC offers FREE one-on-one lessons for adults (16+). We are able to help with a range of student-driven topics, including secondary or CEGEP studies, preparation for citizenship or driving exams, etc. Please contact us today if you know of someone who could benefit from our services.
We welcome new volunteers. No previous experience is necessary as we provide training. Help us to help our community.
