   About the Position

Impact Statement
Frontier College is a national literacy organization. We believe literacy is a right. We work with volunteers and community partners to give people the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential and contribute to society.

Virtual North Six Reading Buddies is an online guided reading program run by Frontier College, in partnership with the North Six Neighbourhood Association, that engages and helps children in grades 2-4 improve their social and reading skills in a safe, fun, and friendly virtual environment. Virtual tutors are then matched up with learners to engage in one-on-one reading facilitated through the Zoom breakout room feature. During the last part of the session, the virtual tutors play games with the learners to further develop their literacy skills.

This volunteer position is currently accepting applications for our fall session running from October 20 until December 1. Please fill out the volunteer inquiry form ( and then we will follow up with an application form and information regarding next steps in our new volunteer tutor onboarding process.
