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 403-330-3313 or 
register online for Read-On HERE

Upcoming 2017 Tutor Training dates are Saturday, September 16, and Saturday, November 18


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 403-330-3313 to make an appointment to register.  This appointment will take about 1 hour.  Registration fee is $30.00
