The AEC Program Manager, Walter Luzzi, had the opportunity to facilitate the workshop “How to Empower EAL Volunteers”. This presentation was as part of the annual Adult Language Training conference held this past February 21, 2013 at the Université de Saint-Bonifce. This year’s conference was untitled “Empowering Adult Learning”.
Almost 40 attendees had the opportunity to learn what the Access English Centre (AEC) does to recruit, train, motivate and retain volunteers for the program. As well as discover tips to keep volunteers happy, motivated and actively involved.
Many EAL organizations represented in the audience shared their appreciation for all the ideas shared by the AEC team during this workshop.
