A Few Words from Our Learners

“I enjoy learning software and felt YouTube knowledge would be a helpful tool in doing community work. I enjoyed learning how to put together a video and using YouTube to publish on the Web. My favourite part of the program was putting together the video and audio tracks. I enjoyed the instructor. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and pleasant. I recommend the program, instructor, and the agency to any who are interested in learning new skills.”
-Christine Hains

“I applied for this program to learn a new skill to help the Optimist Club and my personal development. This program has helped me discover tools to allow me to make videos for ads and maybe even a commercial to help recruit new members. My favourite part of the program was realizing the potential I can have with the help of the right tools like YouTube. The teacher was amazing. She always took the time to explain and she went above and beyond to help me with ways I could use my technology (device) . Anytime I see a new program being announced, I share it on my Facebook page, as I think Tri-County Literacy Council is a great place to learn new skills to help you further yourself.”
