We'd love you to volunteer with LiteracyWorks. Here's how you could contribute:
+ Help change someone's life: Train to become a literacy tutor.
We provide training, usually once or twice a year, that teaches you how to work one-to-one with a student. We expect you to meet with your student for at least two hours per week, and to keep track of student progress. We also ask you to report the hours of work you do with your student.
+ Join our Board.
We need hard-working Board members who want to make a difference in the community. People with established social networks.......... or a literacy background....... or who can bring a skill to the table in the areas of accounting, business, education or IT.
Board Meetings are held ten months of the year (September through June) on the last Monday of the month at 6 p.m.
+ Help us organize Used Book Sales
We need people to collect, sort, move and sell books at our sales. These sales take place roughly three times a year, in Spring, in early Summer and in the fall. We collect and sort books and then transport them to Kildonan Place or Portage Place for the sales. We need people who can lift boxes of books, who have pick-up trucks, or who can help with selling the books in the malls. These are short-term commitments that could easily fit with a busy schedule.
