Volunteer Adult Tutor Program
July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020
The Volunteer Adult Tutor program matches volunteer tutors with adult learners who want to work on their literacy, numeracy, or language skills. Learners go through a safe, non-judgemental assessment process with the Centre’s Adult Learning Team and decide on goals together. Participants are then paired with a trained volunteer tutor who has appropriate skills to match the goals of the learners. Tutors and learners usually meet for at least six months on a weekly basis to work toward learner goals. Meetings take place in public spaces in areas of the city or at Centre for Family Literacy – whatever works best for the pair.
