BECOMING A VOLUNTEER TUTOR
LDAWC is looking for enthusiastic, committed, motivated people who would like to be positive role models. You must also have excellent oral and written English language skills, as Reading Rocks is a reading/literacy program.
You must be a minimum of 15 years old to apply to tutor.
All new tutors must attend a mandatory training/orientation session that will be held roughly a week before the program begins. The time commitment for this opportunity is 2 evenings a week one-on-one tutoring (1 hour each evening) for a total of 16 sessions plus approximately 1 hour per week outside of program hours for activity preparation.
All tutors aged 18+ must have a current Police Vulnerable Sector Check clearance issued within one year of the start of the program.
To volunteer at an in-person session, we do require all of our tutors to be up to date on their COVID 19 vaccinations.
To participate in the online session, you will need: a reliable high-speed internet connection, a computer/laptop with built-in speakers, a microphone and a webcam.
Programs run twice a week (Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesday and Thursday) 6:30-7:30 pm.
