One to One Reading Volunteer Training

If you love to read and are interested in working with children, consider becoming a volunteer with the One to One Children’s Literacy Program. One to One reading programs take place in many elementary schools in the district including schools in Salmon Arm, Armstrong, Enderby, Sorrento and Sicamous.

Parent and community volunteers are needed to support our students with their reading. The commitment is 1.5 hours per week for 10 to 12 weeks staring in mid-October. During that time, volunteers will read with 3 children for 30 minutes each. The children are in grades 2 to 5 and are selected by their teachers to receive this special reading help. All tutoring is done at the school during regular school hours. The One to One program is organized by the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) in partnership with School District #83.

A  training session for all volunteers in basic reading strategies is mandatory as well as a criminal record check. A training session will be held on Monday, September 9, 2019

To sign on as a tutor or for further information, please contact Kyla Sherman, ONE TO ONE coordinator at 250-463-4555 or
