- The Youth Literacy Program offers one to one tutoring for school-aged children from 6-18, helping them in any school subject in which they are having difficulty. Learners are referred by teachers or parents. We work in partnership with schools and libraries to help children succeed.
- RESOURCE CENTRE:
- We maintain a learning resources library with resources on learning and literacy for tutors and parents, and games, manipulatives, and children’s books to facilitate the tutors’ work.
- We offer a program of events for both children and adults which will include lectures by experts in teaching, family literacy, and learning difficulties, as well as workshops by professional writers, artists, and storytellers to enhance cultural and family literacy in the area.
What else should I know?
Meetings with tutors may be in school, at libraries, in our office – wherever convenient for tutor and learner. Learners may be in school, homeschooled, or out of school, as long as they are 6-18 years of age, they may apply.
All information remains confidential.
