ONE TO ONE Literacy Volunteer Opportunity

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.   

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 your community   
  • Able to commit to weekly shifts for the duration of the school year from October to June or January 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 the one-on-one time with a caring literacy tutor.   

  No prior tutoring experience 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 weare a good match. Initial training sessions for new volunteers will be held in September 2023.
