Sponsor A Tutor
Learning Buddies Network needs your support!
Since 2008, Learning Buddies Network has supported elementary school students develop essential literacy and math skills through free one on one, after school tutoring. We tutor children who would otherwise not get the help they need. Our goals are to enhance self-esteem through improvement in academic skills, and to ignite a passion for learning in a safe and caring environment. Our approach is to initiate early, critical intervention in the lives of at-risk children who fall behind academically or struggle to catch up. It is these children, identified by their teachers as in need of our support, who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the system, and who most benefit from our programs.
The program is available at no cost to schools or students. Learning Buddies Network is a registered charity and our program is completely funded by grants and private donations. LBN recruits over 400 volunteer tutors and leaders yearly to run programs at capacity. (180 per term and 50 in the summer) We need your help!
Our ‘Sponsor A Tutor‘ Campaign empowers YOU to directly support a tutor who is in turn impacting the life of a child. For only $60 per term, you will provide tutors with educational teaching materials, books, school supplies, transportation to and from school, snacks for students, a stable volunteer opportunity, a leadership role, and ultimately the pride that comes with mentoring and advancing a student in need in the Lower Mainland. LBN provides training to volunteer tutors as well as provides support to the students, coordinators and schools.
Here’s how you can help:
$60 pays for one tutor/student for one school term
$180 pays for one tutor/student for the entire school year (3 terms)
$600 pays for one LBN classroom (10 tutors/students) for one term
$1800 pays for one LBN classroom (10 tutors/students) for the entire school year (3 terms)
