Are you a student, professional, retiree or someone who loves working and being around kids? We have the perfect opportunity for you.

United for Literacy Ottawa is currently looking for tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their French homework as well as their French reading and writing skills to accommodate the high demand for French learning support in Ottawa.

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!

We have programs available in East, West, South and Central Ottawa. You will be placed at a site based on your location preference, available positions and program needs. The library programs run after school for about an hour and the start-end times range from 4pm to 7:30pm depending on the location.

Please note that to be eligible for this opportunity you must be able to speak, read and write in French at the intermediate level.

**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 an application form. Note that candidates aged 18 or over will be required to provide a vulnerable sector Police Check. All candidates below the age of 18 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.
