Host A Workshop

Literacy organizations and community groups that serve seniors or Indigenous Peoples can sign up to run a workshop. Hosts can choose to run a series of workshops on a number of topics, or focus on a select few based on the needs and interest of their learners.

All organizations that sign up to run a workshop will be provided with printed teaching materials and online facilitator training. Additionally, organizations may be eligible to receive a $50 honorarium for every workshop run.

If you’re hosting your workshop through the ABC Skills Hub online learning platform, please complete this form so we can send your organization an honorarium after your workshops.

*Please note that we require workshops be booked at least three weeks in advance in order to ship your materials to you on time.
