Calgary Family Services at Calgary Learning Village Collaborative)
Twyla, in her role as Family Connector, was one of the pioneers of the family connector position within the Calgary Learning Village Collaborative starting in 2010. Her vision and action have contributed many innovative and collaborative ideas for the betterment of families and their positive connection to school and learning. The Homework Help Program was created, bringing together partnering agencies with volunteers to fill a gap that existed in the community in relation to tutoring. Twyla’s attitude about taking the challenges we experience in work and life as an opportunity to create and generate new thoughts and ideas has greatly benefited all the lives she touches.
