The Library Champions Project is a volunteer program in many public libraries in B.C. It is for people who are new to Canada. It is three months long.
What do volunteers learn?
Library Champions go to four training sessions. They learn about library, settlement and community services. They also work on communication, presentation and outreach skills.
What do volunteers do?
After training, Library Champions share the information they have learned. This can include talking to friends and family, giving group presentations, and using social media. They can get help from program leaders.
If you are a new immigrant, you can learn new things, help others and make friends by joining this program.
