An average of three hours per month, plus board meeting attendance, and some participation as a board member in other SSLS activities, such as the Giant Book & Jewellery Sale.

Organizational Mission:

SSLS is dedicated to promoting literacy through building awareness, collaborative partnerships and service provision so that people can participate more fully in life. Its motto is “Learn. Grow. Succeed.” Its services are free.

Organizations Services:

The society offers one-on-one tutoring for adults (including ESL), reading programs in Salt Spring’s elementary schools and for seniors, computer/tech assistance, exam invigilation and more.
