Back to school isn’t far off, and that will mean homework for Nanaimo’s high school students.
Literacy Central Vancouver Island is asking for volunteer tutors to help youths with their homework, notes a press release from Volunteer Nanaimo. Volunteers are sought to assist teens in grades 10 to 12 with a range of subjects: math, chemistry, social studies, science and English.
Tutoring can be done in person or online, and training is available for those who need some help using Zoom. Volunteers will be required to go through an RCMP security check, paid for by Literacy Central Vancouver Island. For more information about volunteering, call Delaney at 250-754-8988 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This past spring, Literacy CVI shifted its adult tutoring program online and continued to connect 22 tutors and learners, noted a press release from the organization last month. Literacy Central Vancouver Island provided 68 free computers and 71 affordable refurbished computers to low-income families in the region to help them access online learning.
“For a small organization, we’re proud of how we effectively maintained our community literacy mandate by moving tutoring online, ramping up our refurbished computer program, and adjusting our approach,” said Samantha Letourneau, Literacy Central Vancouver Island’s executive director, in the release.
