This site and Facebook page have been created by the Institute of Community Engaged Research at UBC Okanagan in collaboration with Kelowna Community Resources using a program very generously donated by Geolive.

We have created a mapping website that allows people who want to donate and to share information about household items, employment opportunities, services, housing, and volunteering that might be used by incoming Syrian refugees. Information shared through the map will be accessible to sponsors of refugees and others who are working directly with refugees in their transition to Canada. The site is moderated, and access to information shared can be limited.

English Speaking Class


Julian Hudson

Photo One - English Speaking Class

This is a class focused on helping students speak English as a second language. . This is a very practical class that uses the Bible as a learning document. Students will be expected to read out loud and actively participate. Through conversation and reading, the student will be better able to produce basic sounds and grammar, as well as understand some of the many nuances in the English Language.

Though the class uses the Bible as the main text, it is not meant to push the student into a certain way of religious thinking, but rather to use the Bible as an interesting document and a source of learning.

These are free evening classes that include dinner (also free). Please call Julian Hudson at 250-253-7253 to schedule a class. After a preliminary discussion, we can discuss how long will be necessary to reach the goals of the student.
