Episode 2- Cecilia Rossander (William Head Institution, BC)

Roberta chats with social program officer Cecilia Rossander about the programming offered at William Head Federal Institution, such as William Head On Stage (WHOs). Together they discuss how being involved in theatre and other community-based programs can bring self-worth and confidence to the residents at correctional institutes, preparing them for their lives, their work, their communication and their callings. This is validated in interviews with two residents from William Head who participated in a radio play over the pandemic.

Roberta also requests more written and audio submissions from the residents with respect to their Acts of Kindness stories.

Roberta Power

Roberta is a longtime English instructor. Now, she is the Educational Consultant in Canada for the not-for-profit ProLiteracy, New Readers Press whose mission is to raise adult literacy rates globally. Two years ago, Roberta asked if she could represent New Readers Press after using their books in her class and witnessing how well received they were.

Additionally, Roberta has a love of the English language and the human psyche; she spreads her delight in both, making self-help videos and humorous plays on her own and with her students. She has always wanted to work in a correctional environment and she's thrilled to have this opportunity to speak with the teachers and students there, offering a forum for their voices through voicEd Radio.
