Literacy skills are the foundation of learning at school, at home and beyond.


When a child falls behind in reading, it impacts nearly every aspect of their early life, from academics, to their relationships with peers and feelings of self-worth.

At ONE TO ONE we support children who are struggling to read by pairing them with a volunteer tutor who helps them discover the joy of reading.

After two years of virtual programming inspired by the pandemic, it’s time to support our tutors to reach even more students in schools again.

Your support this holiday season empowers volunteer tutors with the training, skills and resources they need to teach even more kids across BC how to read.


“My daughter loves her tutors and has really looked forward to reading with them every week.


She has also increased her vocabulary and confidence in English, which has made a big difference in her social life. She has made friends and feels good about going to school now.”
