Steps to Becoming a Project Literacy Learner
The first step to becoming a Project Literacy learner is to fill out the below form and we’ll contact you to arrange an appointment with one of our Education Coordinators. They will meet with you and make an assessment of your English. Vocabulary, pronunciation, reading comprehension, writing, and math may be evaluated. Your goals and areas of interest will also be discussed in order to create an individualized learning program for you. After this they will match you with a suitable tutor. Your assessment results and personal information are kept confidential.
Once we have a good match, we will contact you by phone or email.
*** Please note that it may take a few weeks to be matched with a tutor.
“The Digital literacy program offered by the Project Literacy Central Okanagan Society is a perfect way for seniors who have avoided Technology like the plague to be introduced to cell phones in an informal informative environment. Seniors have various reasons for not joining the technological revolution but at some point everyone faces the realization that rotary dial phones are not coming back and modern methods of communication are not only here to stay but are evolving daily!
You have to start somewhere and relying on your 14 year old grandson is not the answer. Options are limited but the Project literacy digital literacy program provides a very viable opportunity. The training consists of six one-hour sessions with a knowledgeable volunteer tutor. The sessions are very informal and cover the basics. You will learn to make and receive phone calls, send and receive texts, use your camera and get an introduction into apps, As the training is informal there is not a set curriculum and you can ask any question you like. There are no exams so those adverse to tests need not fear. The object is to learn as much as you can so you can join the revolution.
I took the training and I’m happy I did so!!”John C. Hough, Digital Learner
