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 Tutoring


Karen

Photo One - English Tutoring

I can help with everyday English - i.e. paperwork, shopping etc, and/or I can provide more formal English lessons. I can offer approx. 2 hours per week on a regular basis, but I could arrange to be more available if needed. Although recreation may not be an immediate priority when settling, I could introduce local parks and recreational opportunities to anyone with an interest. I have worked as a middle school teacher and have worked as a teacher on call in SD23 since having children. Although I do not have my TESL certificate, I have taught English in Japan and at a language school in England. I would do my best to design a program to meet the needs of the learners. I want to do what I can to welcome the people to the community so I'd be happy to help out not only with English, but with any other areas of need - ie. food shopping, cooking, navigating the school system etc.
