Opportunity Description:

The Literacy and Learning Program is a free service that offers individuals the opportunity to improve literacy and/or computer skills. The program is for men and women aged 18+ who are facing language and literacy barriers and have had or are at risk of being involved with the criminal justice system. The program offers one-to-one tutoring or small group learning in the community. The program focuses on foundational learning, supporting learners up to a grade 9 level or a basic level of computer skills. Learners can work on reading, writing, computer skills, and specific self-identified learning goals with an emphasis placed on skills that can be used in everyday life. The Volunteer Tutor will work with foundational learners who request assistance to improve their literacy and / or digital literacy skills. Some position specific activities might include collaborating with the Literacy Coordinator to facilitate course programs within the office and community, facilitating drop-in lab sessions in collaboration with our employment program, or offer one-to-one tutoring sessions with clients. Tutors may assist learners in job seeking, completing online job applications, improving internet functions, opening and using email accounts, and using Microsoft programs to create resumes and cover letters. The volunteer tutor will also work collaboratively with the Literacy Coordinator to ensure that learner goals and needs are met, client data is collected and entered into the organization’s database, and that workshops and drop-in lab sessions operate smoothly. Volunteer candidates should note that potential learning opportunities take place in the community, or at the agency main office.  Minimum of 4 hours per week.  Please visit our website for full job description details.
