Volunteer as a learning partner in one of our community partner programs in the Lower Mainland. Choose to work one-on-one or in group settings with kids, youth, or adults. Work directly with learners on their homework assignments, life skills, and other engaging, inclusive, and fun learning activities.
On average, tutors spend 2-4 hrs per week volunteering. Programs are located in Burnaby, Vancouver, and New Westminster. Virtual options are also available.
