Learning Buddies Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping elementary school students develop essential literacy and math skills through free one on one, after school tutoring in a fun group setting. We reach children who otherwise would not have the help they need. Our goals are to enhance self-esteem through improvement in academic skills and to ignite a passion for learning in a safe and caring environment.
Mentor responsibilities include: attending math/ reading training, orientation, Mentor sessions, and Mentor meetings, completing Mentor reports, preparing lesson material for each session, tracking the student’s progress, reporting to Program Coordinators and Executive Coordinator, and assisting in volunteer recruitment.
Training Dates (ALL new and returning mentors must attend BOTH of these sessions): June 28th 1-4pm and July 5th 2-4pm.
Work Term (Summer): July 6th – July 31st. Our programs run 3 times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Hours for mentors are 9:45 – 11:00, 12:45 – 2:00, or 2:15 – 3:30. This summer, our programs will be held remotely, through Zoom.
