BCRTA needs Volunteers - Retirement Workshop Facilitator bcrta.ca

The BCRTA provides a pre-retirement workshop THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN MONEY for active teachers.

The workshop is about retirement. It’s fun to facilitate a workshop where the participants are really looking forward to a positive retirement.Excerpt from a letter to the BCTF Teacher Magazine:
“For several years in my local (Coquitlam), our professional development day offerings have included ‘There’s More to it Than Money’ sessions presented by BCRTA members who share their personal experiences with colleagues who are investigating retirement. Each year the sessions have been oversubscribed and extremely well received by attendees. Many teachers view retirement with mixed emotions and the workshops provide an excellent forum for realistic, informed discussion. The focus of these sessions is on life after retirement – the endless possibilities of retirement lead to thoughtful conversations facilitated by BCRTA presenters.”

Usually two presenters facilitate workshops. Out of pocket expenses are covered and training is provided.
