OUR RESPONSE

On behalf of everyone at ONE TO ONE, we want to let you know we value your safety and are committed to working with you to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 illness. 

This page will continually be updated with the latest information in regards to the program, volunteers, staff and events.

COVID-19 Response Campaign

Thanks to the generosity of ONE TO ONE supporters our Keep the Pages Turning campaign was a success. Together, we raised $7855 for our program. And, with the early commitment of three corporate sponsors, we exceeded our $15,000 spring fundraising goal!

ONE TO ONE Literacy Program

Even though the pandemic paused our literacy program this spring, we are committed to returning to reading in the fall.

We are taking the summer to put in place a plan that will allow us to support readers around the province, no matter what the return to school looks like in September. Details will be shared as they become available. In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can reach us at contactus@one-to-one.ca.

Parents and Caregivers of Young Readers

On June 26th, we wrapped up our Facebook Reading Campaign supporting young readers through our ONE TO ONE Facebook page every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 

Make sure to follow us on Facebook – for the rest of the summer, we will continue to share reading strategies, literacy games, and tips weekly. 

Together let’s make sure our young readers stay a step ahead.

Volunteers

We know a lot of tutors are excited to read virtually, and we can’t wait to train everyone, so they are confident doing it.

We will resume our tutoring program in the fall, ensuring the safety of both our readers and our volunteers. We encourage you to keep a close eye on your emails. In late summer, we will be inviting all tutors to a virtual town hall to share detailed plans and answer your questions.

For any other questions or concerns please connect with us at contactus@one-to-one.ca.

Are you interested in volunteering?

We are always accepting new applications, but because of current events, we are uncertain what our program will look like in Fall 2020 – whether it will be in-person or virtual tutoring. In the meantime, go ahead and fill in our application based on in-person tutoring so that we have your contact information and keep you updated on our volunteer opportunity.

Office Closure

For the safety of our staff and community, our office will remain closed as we practice physical distancing. The ONE TO ONE team is still available to answer your questions and be a resource to you as we work remotely. 

Postponed Events

Please note all events taking place in April and May have been postponed. Further details will be shared as they become available.
