Saint Columba House provides a high-quality bilingual After-School program to 60 children from the community of Point Saint Charles, working in partnership with nine schools, both English and French. The goals of this program are to enhance literacy and numeracy of children through a range of creative and recreational activities, homework help and one-on-one tutoring in both languages. In addition to activities, children receive milk and a nutritious snack daily. They also participate in our weekly student recognition program, “Stars of the Week”. Parents are involved through parent-child activities, have regular contact with staff, and are welcome to volunteer in the program.
|Volunteer Job(s) and Description||
Volunteer tutors and animators
Central to the After School Program is our team of dedicated volunteers. On a daily basis we have 4-5 volunteers helping children with their homework and working individually with students who need extra help in reading. We also have many University students who participate by leading art and theatre workshops, by working individually with students and by supporting the After-School program staff. It is thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers that we are able to ensure that this program continues to be a success.
|Volunteer Requirements (language, special skills, etc.)||
