Love reading and working with kids? Become a ONE TO ONE volunteer tutor and open the world of reading to a child!
ONE TO ONE matches struggling young readers with volunteer tutors across Vancouver public schools where they practice reading with a caring, patient adult. We know that this time spent with students directly impacts the student’s confidence and their chance of succeeding academically and in life.
Volunteer tutors read once a week, either in the mornings or afternoons, at a specific school, from October to June. You will be developing a relationship with the students that will help them bloom into successful readers.
You must be 18 years old, proficient in English and/or French and complete a criminal record check. ONE TO ONE provide training and ongoing support.
