How long does each volunteer session last?
Students read with volunteers in structured 30-minute sessions, 2 times per week for the school year (October to June). In some regions, sessions are 4 times per week for 12-week blocks.
Is there training for tutors?
Volunteers are required to attend a 3-hour training session and complete a criminal record check.
As a parent, how can I enroll my child in ONE-TO-ONE?
Each school has a School Coordinator who oversees the program within their school, usually a Resource Teacher, Teacher Librarian, Administrator or other interested staff member. The School Coordinator works with the classroom teachers to select and schedule the students and to create their reading logs and other materials.
As a parent, how can I get my school involved?
Vancouver area schools and some regions outside of Vancouver have an Area Liaison or Regional Liaison involved in the ongoing support of the program.
