Share your love of reading and comfort with Zoom meetings, by facilitating a small online book club for people with development disabilities. This role promotes literacy, community interaction and building relationships.
As a Book Club Facilitator you will manage the weekly Zoom meetings (admitting members, sharing screens, assigning cohosts etc.) as well as assign Individual readers, plan sessions and read some of the chosen text to/with the group.
This group usually focusses on one book per season and works slowly through chapters, reading together and discussing.
This group meets virtually every Tuesday from 6-7 pm, therefore the Facilitator would need to commit about 1.5 hours each Tuesday and perhaps an additional 30 - 60 minutes weekly for planning.
