Position Volunteer Educator for Therapeutic Recovery Community in View Royal - Adult learning program
Location 94 Talcott Road, Victoria, BC, Canada
Impact Statement Our Place Society’s New Roads, is a unique therapeutic recovery community located in View Royal that is dedicated to ending the cycle of substance use disorder, criminality and homelessness.

New Roads is a positive, peer-led treatment environment that encourages appropriate behaviour through reinforcement and accountability.

The practice and rehearsal of appropriate social interaction and interpersonal skills within a safe, supportive atmosphere allows residents to discover new attitudes, values, and ultimately a new way of life.
Description We are looking for an educator, possibly a retired teacher, who would volunteer to help our residents as they look to improve their educational deficits.

We need someone comfortable teaching and guiding adult learners.

The volunteer in this position would help the residents upgrade their current education. Give guidance on how to find the right college and the right program and then help them register.

And most importantly, help men, who in many cases have not seen the inside of a classroom for many years, gain confidence in their ability to learn.
