Wed Aug 28 Luncheon - Vocational Training by Jason Chow


Jason, a Richmond Secondary Teacher is part of the Rotary Vocational Training Team to Kenya. With the District 5040 Foundation Grant, we provided computer labs to two schools in rural Kenya,  the team made up with 6 school teachers led by PDG John Anderson travelled to Kenya on March 16 to conduct 2 weeks workshop to train teachers to teach with technology and implement 21 Century Learning Skills in the classrooms.

Jason has 11 years of teaching experience, he primarily teaches senior physics and has experience teaching all disciplines of science in junior grades. He is very involved in the school community.  Read more...

A squall of rain today did not dampen Rotary spirit.  For those of us who could attend, we learned about Techability, a research and innovation project that ASTTBC, the Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of BC does on behalf of many citizens who have some sort of disability.  Jacqueline B. de Raa, Manager of Executive Initiatives and Community Relations showed some interesting statistics how few people with disabilities find fruitful and meaningful technical employment.  Whilst companies claim being open and supportive of employing and offer job shadowing to candidate, statistics reveal how poorly our society is providing training and jobs.  ASTTBC is actively connecting career-oriented job seekers with disabilities/diverse abilities to technical occupations in B.C. These are very positive steps for finding very capable people for progressive companies.  Jacqueline was joined today by her colleague Warren Walker.
Very nice for Grace Tsang from RC Richmond Sunset to visit us, and also to meet a visiting Rotarian from Michigan, Dr. Raj Prakash, who took a bit of time out of his vacation for a make-up meeting with our club.
