Looking back on this past year, it’s hard to believe how much we have accomplished as an organization. With such a committed team, we have significantly grown our Volunteer Technology Assistance Program (VTAP), making it available 3 times a week in 5 locations across the Peel and Halton regions. VTAP alone has generated over 5500 client visits this year (not including December). Additionally, we have developed our Lifelong Learning Workshop program, allowing us to reach out to hundreds of adults 55+ in the GTA . It is without question that this has been made possible by the contributions and support of our AMAZING volunteer technology tutors.
Chris and I are both truly grateful to have the opportunity to work with such a diverse and outstanding group of individuals. We are always humbled by the amount of generosity and care that is continuously displayed by all of our volunteers. We consider you essential members of ETAG’s team. For all that and more, Thank You!
As we move into 2013, I have no doubt that we will continue to grow. We are always looking for ways to better ourselves and the programs we offer.My goal is to not only educate our older adult clients but to provide each of our volunteers an opportunity to acquire new skills in the process. I am always looking for more input and feedback. Please don’t hesitate to share your idea’s and thoughts with me.
Once again, I would like to thank our volunteer technology tutors for an amazing year.
Happy Holiday’s and a prosperous New Year!
