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.
