Book Club Champions for Literacy: Toonies for Tutoring
In 2016 VLC developed a new fundraising program targeted to book clubs as we realized there was a natural fit between book lovers and people facing literacy challenges. At each book club meeting members contribute a toonie. This money supports training for volunteer tutors – it costs approximately $120 a year to train a tutor.
As a thank you for those book clubs supporting VLC we offer a literary event featuring local authors. The first two event were held at Bolen Books and both generated much excitement and appreciation.
We currently have 12 active bookclubs participating. Individuals who do not belong to a book club but till want to support our learners are encouraged to join the Loonies for Literacy Program.
