It's lit

Jan 17, 2020 | A few of our students are volunteering their time to improve digital literacy in the Eastern Townships.

Last Saturday, Ritchie, Ha An, and Son began their training with Literacy In Action with a view to helping community members better understand all things digital. The organization works with all ages to provide one-on-one tutoring in reading, writing, math, and computer use. Building off the success of BCS' involvement in the program last year, our three students will be paired primarily with senior members of the community to help them use their digital devices and the web. The training session served to teach them effective communication skills to help them as they train others. "It's a great opportunity for our students to get involved beyond the Lennoxville community," expressed Mr. Crowther, our librarian and liaison with the organization. "This year's group has a strong background in tech, so we're excited to see where this goes." Ritchie, Ha An, and Son are looking forward to beginning their tutoring as early as next weekend. We're proud to see our students spreading the gift of knowledge!
