Literacy Now South Okanagan-Similkameen needs your help!

Through the One To One Reading program, you can help instill a love of reading in a child in the SD 67 and SD 53 elementary schools.

We are looking for volunteers to read with children in grades 1-4 for a single 90-minute session each week.

All volunteers will be asked to provide a Criminal Record check and to attend a free training session.

If you are interested, please contact Dannielle Hyde at 250-770-0029 or by email
