SCIP CONTINUES TO SUPPORT SCHOOL DISTRICT 83

Our continued support by way of cash donations to North Okanagan – Shuswap School District 83 is going a long way by purchasing tools to introduce trades training to youth starting as young as  kindergarten.

2017 board of directors

One of the many duties of the Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo is to help non profits make it possible to follow through with their mandate by digging and advocating on their behalf to find funds to help them out. Most recently SCIP has been actively promoting and supporting the new Explore A Trade Program through School District # 83. A letter was written to our MLA in the Fall requesting funding to help out with the duties of SCIP so we can continue to move forward and promote worthy causes such as this. Through the gaming funds Mr. Kyllo was able to find us some money and on March 22, 2017 presented a cheque in the amount of $10,000.00 to the SCIP Board of Directors.

 

SUPPORT OFFERED TO SCHOOL DISTRICT #83

SCIP was approached with a request to support a Trades Sampler/Awareness Program that School District #83 – Career Programs is currently setting up. It has been determined that they will need $25,000.00 in tooling to offer a robust sampler program. Although they were fortunate enough to receive a $5,000.00 grant from the Ministry of Education to get the program started, this would not provide enough tools to offer a diverse program.

The request was delivered to the SCIP Board of Directors at a regular monthly meeting and they thought it was a great idea as it fits well with SCIP’s mandate. After discussion, a motion  was unanimously passed supporting the project by way of a $10,000.00 donation to purchase tools from local suppliers that are SCIP members and then follow up with $2,000.00 annually to support career programs in lieu of the scholarships previously offered to School District #83. The presentation took place Wednesday morning, May 4, 2016 and the full story can be seen on the SCIP Facebook page or watch for it in the local newspaper.
