If you are currently a wee read volunteer and have enjoyed your experience, we invite you to become a Read Up! tutor. By spending 40 minutes twice a week for approximately 40 sessions with a struggling Grade 1 or 2 student you can help a child become a confident, successful independent reader.
Tutors receive 3.5 hours of training to follow the Calgary Reads lesson framework that includes a variety of effective reading strategies.
To become a Read Up! volunteer you must have participated in the wee read program.
This opportunity is also offered to school referred volunteers who have completed an online volunteer application.
