Education Events in SK

The Western Development Museum - Moose Jaw is offering a teachers information night on September 16. Here is an invitation. I would appreciate it if you would forward it to all your teachers. I think that the Museum offers a number of programs that can support their class work.

David Roman is the Aboriginal Leadership Coordinator at the YMCA of Regina. He is in charge of a free tutoring program offered to students 5-12, G.E.D. and E.S.L. at the downtown YMCA. We are currently looking for volunteer tutors to help out minimum of one hour a week. We have quite a large demand for tutors so we are taking people who are proficient in any subject area. This might be a good chance for Education students to get some hands on experience in the community with a variety of different students. We only ask for one hour a week, however if someone is so inclined to do more they can as well.

Below is a brochure with all the info and David's contact information if anyone is interested. Also, feel free to contact David at anytime if you have any questions. He can be reached at 757-9622 ext 260.
