Volunteer of the Month

Maria Houle - Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers

Feb2017Maria2February’s Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month Draw Winner is Maria Houle!    Maria was nominated for our Volunteers of the Week program, on February 23rd, by the Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers; here’s a look back at Maria’s nomination:

“Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers nominates Maria Houle. Since September 2016 Maria has been a co-facilitator for our Wednesday Evening Group for the Conversational English Club (this is in collaboration with the GP Public Library). Each week clients meet for 1 hour and 30 minutes to practice speaking English in a group setting through facilitated conversations. We are so grateful to have Maria as a volunteer. She is down to earth, patient and friendly. Her relaxed facilitation style is one that participants really appreciate and enjoy.  She is passionate about her volunteer work with us and is genuinely interested in learning about different cultures. Her lessons and activities are always fun! Thanks Maria for taking time out of your busy week to volunteer with us.”

For being named Volunteer of the Month Maria has won a $100 Tims Card from Tim Hortons! Congratulations Maria!

The staff and board of the GPVSB would like to thank our sponsor Tim Hortons for helping us fuel the volunteers of Grande Prairie.
