The Friends of Simon initiative was recognized with a Celebration of Community Award presented by Scotiabank. The United Way of the Lower Mainland Celebration of Community Award recognizes community supports that respond in innovative ways to changing social conditions. Simon Fraser University's Friends of Simon recruits, prepares and assigns Simon Fraser University students as literacy tutors in the Lower Mainland, particularly with newcomer students. Working with community agencies and schools, Friends of Simon offers tutoring support during after-school, Saturday and summer programs. Children increase their literacy skills through a range of activities, such as writing, drama, poetry, songs and creative movement.
