An Introduction

Hi, I’m Roksana and I’m in S5. For this project of acting as a consultant for a charity or NGO, I’ll be looking at the Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre, an organization that addresses literacy by giving programs on reading, writing, math, and using computers for adults who’s first language isn’t English or who are new in the country (more on what they do later)
I won’t be able to volunteer there because it’s a time commitment of at least 6 months that I can’t do, and I’m not even sure if they hire teens and if I could, but I will be talking with the chair and the director of the organization.
For now, that’s all I have to say.
