Learning English at home
Family Literacy Outreach matches a newcomer immigrant or refugee family with a volunteer tutor. Volunteer tutors support families by meeting up on a virtual platform once a week for about an hour.
Newcomer families will get opportunities to enhance their English and other literacy skills by doing fun and interactive activities together. Tutors also inform and help families explore other community resources that will strengthen the family’s connection to their neighbourhood. Volunteer tutors are always needed – get in touch now!
Participate & Volunteer
Volunteer tutors receive training to successfully support the participants learning needs. This program is in partnership with Vancouver Community College and sponsored by the Ministry of Advanced Education.
We are always looking for volunteer tutors and families for this program. Please contact Morie If you know of a family who would benefit, or a volunteer who would like to be a tutor.
