Last week we left Yellowknife with 50 kilograms of luggage and returned from Délı̨ne with only 4.5 kilograms.
Strategic planning. Budgeting. Policy updates. These are some of the necessary behind-the-scenes work that boards and staff tackle in non-profit organizations. The NWT Literacy Council is no exception. Last weekend the Literacy Council board members gathered in Yellowknife to host our Annual General Meeting and to finish updating their board handbook and personnel policies.
We're celebrating NWT Literacy Week September 25 through to October 1.
Each year we choose a theme that explores the connection that literacy and essential skills have to many aspects of our lives. This year, the theme is Tied to Tech. Technology has so many benefits, like helping us connect to the world, or learn a new language, but it also can be addictive, or lead to bullying and strained relationships. It’s important to think about the ways we use technology, and ask ourselves if we are really in control. We hope you take some time this week to think about how technology impacts your life.
