PROJECT - SERVICE to OTHERS initiated by RTO District 31 and funded by RTO Provincial

Project - Service to Others is a Provincial RTO/ERO program that provides grants to Districts for initiatives that support the concept of "Service to Others". The intent is to contribute to a variety of community projects and thereby raise the profile of the RTO/ERO by demonstrating, to active teachers, and to the public, that retired teachers care about their communities and are willing to help others who need assistance.

Information on the Project - STO application process and the application forms for the current year are available on the Provincial RTO/ERO website.
