Opportunity Description:

Open the world of reading to a child and become a volunteer tutor!


ONE TO ONE Literacy Society is looking for enthusiastic, compassionate, and open-minded individuals to share the joy of reading with children in their community. Volunteer tutors develop a connection with their readers that will help them feel successful and confident with their reading skills. 


We run two programs:

– In-person school tutoring at a local elementary school in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. We are specifically looking for volunteers to support elementary schools in East and South Vancouver

– Virtual after-school tutoring over Zoom


What are the requirements? 

We are looking for community members who are: 

– Friendly, reliable, and approachable 

– Aged 18 or over 

– Available to meet during the school day, at an elementary school in East or South Vancouver, or after-school (4-6 pm) over Zoom

– Able to commit to weekly shifts for the duration of the school year from February to June 


Who are the readers? 

Children in grades 1-7 who are not reading at the same level as their peers or could benefit from one-on-one time with a caring literacy tutor.   


No prior tutoring experience is necessary! ONE TO ONE will provide ongoing training opportunities and a network of support.  


It is easy to get started on your volunteer journey – fill out an application form online,, complete a free criminal record check, and then have a chat with ONE TO ONE on the phone to make sure we are a good match. Initial training sessions for new volunteers will be held in January 2024.
