Fostering Literacy Tutoring Program

HDPL, in partnership with Storytellers’ Foundation, is pleased to be the recipient of a 2017 Fostering Literacy grant from Decoda Literacy Solutions. With the funds from this grant, during the 2017-2018 school year we will be running an after-school tutoring program for children in Kindergarten through Grade 7 who are in need of literacy support.

We are currently recruiting volunteer tutors. Tutor training will be held mid- to late October, with tutoring scheduled to run November through March. Volunteer tutors are required to be available once or twice a week during after-school hours (approximately 4-6 p.m.). All tutors will receive training, ongoing support, and a small honorarium in recognition of their work. If you would like to be a volunteer tutor, please contact Ruth Cooper, Assistant Librarian: <hdpl.ruth@citywest.ca> or 250-842-5961. We thank you for your interest!
