Become a literacy tutor

One in six Canadian adults can't read well enough to understand the information on this page. You can help in the fight against illiteracy by volunteering as a Literacy Tutor with Frontier College.

Frontier College's Literacy Tutors work in homework clubs which are hosted by community agencies and high schools. Literacy Tutors work as a part of a team to deliver high-quality academic support to children and youth in these community settings. Literacy Tutors may work with a broad range of students, including newcomers, students with special needs, and/or pre-school aged children.

All tutors will receive full training from Frontier College.
