DUE TO COVID-19, OUR VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT IS ON HOLD. OUR GOAL IS TO RE-START IN EARLY NOVEMBER 2020. WE INVITE YOU TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM BELOW AND VISIT US AGAIN LATER IN THE YEAR.
Volunteer applications are accepted year round. Upon completing the application you will be added to our volunteer roster. When new programs are planned you will receive an email with program specifics. If you see a program that works with your schedule and you’d like to tutor, simply reply to the email. All necessary onboarding will then be initiated. We expect to run programs in Guelph and Arthur in the fall.
We are looking for enthusiastic, committed, motivated people who would like to be positive role models for our Reading Rocks program.
In this volunteer role you will be working one-on-one with a child aged 6-12, helping them with reading skills. Excellent oral and written English language skills are a must, and previous experience working with children or tutoring would be an asset. Mandatory training will be provided (usually about a week before the program begins) and a reference letter is available at the end of the program upon request.
Becoming a Reading Rocks volunteer tutor is easy.
Just fill out the application at the link below and you will be added to our volunteer roster. When you find a program that you’d like to volunteer at we’ll get you onboarded. The process consists of attending a brief interview so we can get to know you a bit better and getting a (free of charge) vulnerable sector check done (unless you already have a recent one). Finally, you will attend a mandatory training session about a week before the program begins. That’s it!
When: Programs run for 16 sessions one hour, two times per week
Where: Programs will run at various locations throughout Guelph and Wellington County throughout the school year.
