Volunteer for Read On!

Read On relies on adult volunteers (18+) to tutor adult students one-on-one or in small groups.  Student goals may include:  reading, writing, speaking or listening skills, studying for their Canadian Citizenship or driving license, or ESL Conversation Classes. Our students are either Adult Basic Education (fluent in English but need help with reading and writing) or English Language Learners.
Volunteers will complete 6.5 hours of Tutor Training prior to being assigned a student. Once a student is assigned, they meet for approximately one hour per week.
Time commitment for being a Read On Volunteer is: 6.5 hours of initial training, 1 hour per week of tutoring, approximately 15 – 30 minutes per week to prepare for lessons and complete required statistics. We would ask that you be able to volunteer with Read On for a minimum of 6 months.
If you would like to register as a volunteer please call Read On staff at 403-320-4977 or 403-320-3133 or 
register online for Read-On HERE

Our next Tutor Training dates are February 2, May 25 and September 28, 2019


Help For Newcomers!

We offer one-on-one help to adults who are residents of Alberta who need to improve their essential skills - such as reading, writing, math and computer skills.  After finding out what level you are at you will be paired with an adult volunteer tutor.  Your tutor will meet with you for about one hour per week.  They will work with you until you feel you have reached your goals.  One-on-one tutoring is not provided for listening, speaking and pronunciation, please register for one of our conversations classes for those skills.
To Register:
Please call 403-320-4977 or 403-320-3133 to make an appointment to register.  This appointment will take about 1 hour.  Registration fee is $30.00





2018 Student Survey!

 
Students, please fill out this Student Survey.  You will be asked questions about the class you have finished, or about how your tutor has been helping you.  

If you need help please call 403-320-4977 or 403-320-3133.

Niitsi'powahssini — Speaking Blackfoot

We will start by learning the Blackfoot alphabet & sounds, then move on to  speaking simple sentences.  You will also hear Blackfoot stories in Blackfoot and English. When the weather gets nicer, we will visit local sites that have Blackfoot cultural significance. You must pre-register for this class by calling 403-320-3133 or 403-320-4977 or by visiting the Read On offices, located in the Main Branch of the Lethbridge Public Library. This program is now FULL. We are, however, taking names for a waitlist.
