Posted on:

United for Literacy Ottawa’s (previously Frontier College Ottawa) Homework Club program provides homework help to children and youth all over Canada. After over a year of running our programs virtually, we are happy to announce that we will finally be returning in person this upcoming fall. However, volunteers can choose to tutor virtually or opt for a hybrid model (half in person and half online) if they wish.

United for Literacy Ottawa is currently looking for French/bilingual tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their homework as well as their reading and writing skills.

Volunteering with the Homework Club Program is an excellent way to gain experience in early childhood education or literacy tutoring! It is also an ideal environment to contribute meaningfully to your community. We require no prior teaching experience and provide you with all of the training and materials you need. Just bring your communication skills, patience, enthusiasm and love of learning!

This program will take place at the Orléans Library every Tuesday from 5:00-6:30pm

If you are tutoring online, tutoring sessions occur once a week via Zoom video conference call and last approximately one hour each. Sessions are scheduled based on tutors’ and learners’ availability.


**You must be at the minimum age of 16 to be eligible for this volunteering opportunity**

Apply directly through the Volunteer Ottawa portal or contact [email protected] We will then contact you via email within 1-2 weeks to fill out a short Google Form. Note that candidates aged 18 or over will be required to provide a vulnerable sector Police Check. All candidates will be required to provide 2-3 references upon request.

We look forward to meeting you!

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Experience working with youth, teaching experience, sense of accomplishment, increased mood/self esteem, opportunity to contribute meaningfully to your local community, work experience and references.
