    The after school volunteer tutoring program at the North Branch library has been cancelled, after many years of helping countless youth; a basic, low cost crime-prevention program if there ever was one.

      I’m really new to Halifax. This was a program in which I hoped to become involved. Can you tell me why it was cancelled and if there is anything to replace it,

    Phew – it ended up being saved. I think DCS is the funder; they axed the one in Spryfield instead.

    Hi Yvonne: I’ve been in touch with Lana and we are working on finding me a student or two to help. I hope it works out – I’m looking forward to it. My goal in life is to turn all kids into math geeks. :)
