Who?

If you are a senior high school student or a university student looking for a meaningful volunteer experience we are looking for you to join us!

Why?

Through Learning Buddies Network, you will have the opportunity to work directly with a child and develop a supportive mentoring relationship to foster the child’s learning, self –esteem and attitude towards schoolwork.  You will be in charge of the weekly lessons, and can use your own experiences and creativity as you wish. You will develop skills in planning, communicating and in nurturing a child, and in how to be an authority figure. You will develop valuable tutoring experience. Once you have experience as a tutor, you will have the opportunity to take on further responsibility as a site coordinator. This allows development of public speaking skills, peer mentoring, organizational skills and professionalism. These experiences will help you in your studies and work endeavors in the future.  Perhaps the most important reason to join our tutoring team, however, is the satisfaction you can feel in making a difference in a child’s life.

What do you need?

You need TIME to devote to preparing for and attending weekly tutoring sessions after school. You need COMMITMENT to impart to your little buddy, who will respond with gratitude and improved skills and self- esteem.  You need RESPONSIBILITY to be a reliable member of the team, You need a SENSE OF FUN and creativity to bring too!

THINK ABOUT IT…..

If you are a first year university student, we hope that you will join us and stay with us through your schooling.  Each year as a tutor you will become more skilled and helpful to a child.  You will have the opportunity to be a coordinator at your own site for one or more years.  Experienced tutors and coordinators develop a wealth of experience and contribute valuable ideas that we seek and incorporate into our programme structure.  The longer you are involved with our organization, the more ways you will contribute and feel a part of it.
