Volunteer Centre looking for summer day program feedback

The North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (NTVIC) are looking for feedback from parents regarding the need for a Summer Day Program in the community.

Specifically we are looking for feedback on how many spaces, what days, hours, and what ages would register to use this program if it were made available in July and August?  

The program would take place at the Centre in the Ridge, and be staffed by the After School Program staff.

Participants will need to be registered and will be required to bring their own lunches and snacks.

It will be a fee for the service program based on half-day (up to four hours) or whole day use (over four hours). The cost will depend on available funding and number of staff required.

“It is very important that we hear back from parents ASAP as it takes time to organize and apply for funding to keep the costs down,” said NTVIC administrator Kathy Dunn.

Please contact the Centre at 250-672-0033 or at ntvickathy@telus.net with your needs and preferences.

NTVIC will also be hosting a Food Safe Course: March 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. If you are interested in participating please call us to register.

We will also again be offering Summer Sports Camps this summer in basketball, netball and volleyball for various age levels. Dates and prices are yet to be announced.

Dunn also reminds everyone to keep loging in to www.refresheverything.ca to vote for Barriere in the Pepsi Refresh Project for a $100,000 grant to build a slash pad park in the community.

NTVIC’s application for the grant is currently standing in sixth place, having risen last week for a short period of time to fifth.
