Volunteer children’s reading tutors are needed for the One to One children’s literacy program at Canyon-Lister and Erickson elementary schools. One to One is a Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) program for elementary school children who will benefit from extra reading help.
The commitment is one and a half hours, one morning or afternoon per week per session, which is usually between 10-12 weeks. All tutoring is done during school hours, under the supervision of the teaching staff. Substitutes are available to fill in when tutors are ill or on vacation.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, have good reading and English language skills, a desire to make a difference and consent to a criminal record check. If interested, contact the schools directly (Canyon-Lister at 250-428-4161 or Erickson at 250-428-2363) or CBAL community literacy co-ordinator Joan Hedstrom at 250-435-0388 or email@example.com.
