The real strength of any community organization is the measure of the people supporting it.
A new campus-based child care centre at Selkirk College will provide 24 much needed spaces for children, allowing parents attending the college to focus on their school work. Selkirk college is receiving almost $1.2 million through the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund and $300,000 through Columbia Basin Trust to build the Silver King Childcare Centre. The centre will have 16 spaces for infants and toddlers and eight spaces for children up to the age of 12 and will be managed by Kootenay Kids Society. More information can be found at:
There are a number of ways you can volunteer, from a few hours a month, to a day a week, or even once a year. You may even have a suggestion on which program you would like to be involved in. We would love to hear from you.
The aim of the Board of Directors is that it be comprised of people from throughout the community, with a diverse set of skills and qualifications.
