TELUS Wise workshops and resources are all available completely free of charge.
We can accommodate groups of various sizes but typically request a minimum of 20 attendees. We also have experience hosting workshops for larger student groups in a gymnasium/school assembly setting.
TELUS Wise workshops are facilitated by TELUS Wise Ambassadors, primarily made up TELUS employees, retirees and School Resource Officers. TELUS Wise ambassadors complete program training and orientation, as well as a police check before volunteering.
It is preferred that workshop requests are received at least one month in advance of your anticipated workshop date and every effort will be made to arrange for an Ambassador volunteer to deliver your workshop.
In-person workshop availability varies by region. In the event that we are unable to confirm a volunteer TELUS Wise Ambassador in your area to facilitate a workshop, we are happy to discuss other ways we can support your request for digital citizenship education, including hosting a virtual workshop or training a member of your community group to facilitate the workshop.
