【文更】從2016 年已經開展了原住民事工，資助本地原住民學生的補習計劃課程，我們和本地的慈善機構 Vancouver Urban Ministries (VUM)合作。這機構提供免費補習和音樂課給原住民與低收入家庭的孩子。
CRRS began its annual sponsorship with Vancouver Urban Ministries (VUM) in September 2016, sponsoring First Nation elementary students from their “Rising Above Tutoring Program” using the proven Orton-Gillingham approach which engages a multitude of the children’s senses.
Students with learning difficulties receive one-on-one tutoring sessions twice a week to help improve their academics such as reading, writing and math. VUM’s goal is for all our students to have a genuinely positive learning experience in elementary school and gain a strong foundation for success in their high school education and in life.
|In East Vancouver the poverty rates are:|
– Strathcona 58%
– Downtown Eastside 70%
|In the Greater Downtown Eastside:|
– 80% of children are behind the provincial average in reading
– 50% of children are behind in mathematics
|Vancouver Urban Ministries’ aim is to help break the cycle of poverty for some of the most vulnerable families in East Vancouver. Together we can give children with learning challenges a genuine opportunity to grow intellectually and emotionally, develop healthy outlooks in life, and reach their fullest potential.|
|1）Children with learning difficulties receive specialized one-on-one tutoring, have a good start in education, and grow to reach their full potential.|
|2）Children are encouraged to develop self-esteem, confidence, and a sense of achievement.|
|3）Children and their families would find hope for a brighter future as they experience caring, long-term relationships with their tutors and other VUM volunteers.|
