Mark Your Calendars for TUTORING…WITH A TWIST’s Inaugural Scavenger Hunt
It is a Multi-City Scavenger Hunt to raise awareness of a local cause: The Give & Get Fund.
Nanaimo to Parksville, BC – TUTORING…WITH A TWIST, a local tutoring agency serving Duncan to Qualicum, wants to raise awareness of their new initiative: The Give & Get fund through a multi-city Scavenger Hunt. Locations span from downtown Nanaimo to Parksville. This is an all ages event! You can do it as a team or individually! It would be most ideal if you had a car, smart phone and a sense of adventure for the event!
“BC has the worst poverty rate of any province in Canada. As household income is one of the strongest predictors of whether parents hire tutors, the cost of tutoring prevents many parents from hiring tutors. We know that tutoring can help students overcome the anxiety often encountered in classrooms where rewards are based on performance. Similar gains are also made by at-risk students, who show improvements in behaviour and self-control.” Amber Scotchburn, Owner/Founder of TUTORING…WITH A TWIST.
TUTORING…WITH A TWIST’s solution to these facts is their Give & Get Program! It is a charitable program that provides financial assistance to those in our community who wish to participate in TUTORING…WITH A TWIST’s services. What better a way to launch this program then by giving the community a fun way to explore their community and an opportunity to get some cool prizes too! Yes, we said prizes! There are over 40 locally donated prizes!
Pre-registration is advised, as there will be SWAG BAGS for the first 50 registered participants. It will end at a Nanaimo restaurant where fellow hunters will gather and be awarded their prizes! Those that cannot make the Scavenger Hunt can feel free to come to the end gathering, as there will be additional opportunities to get prizes.
Excited yet? Want to see the prizes so far? Register to play here!
