Do you love reading and working with kids? Join our team of passionate volunteer tutors!Become a ONE TO ONE volunteer tutor and open the world of reading to a child!
For nearly 30 years, ONE TO ONE Literacy Society has been helping struggling young readers in Vancouver-area public schools with the opportunity to 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.
Do you have 2 – 3 hours a week during school hours to work one-on-one with students? Our 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, be proficient in English and/or French and complete a criminal background check. We will provide you with training and ongoing support. Training sessions for new volunteers will be held in September 2018. We are looking for volunteer tutors in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, New Westminster and Coquitlam.
