Volunteer Tutors (general members)

Volunteer tutors are UTSC students or community members who can volunteer 1-2 hours a week in person at a community partner site around UTSC. Volunteers work together in a team led by one to two Program Managers and have the opportunity to build many types of skills and experiences. Volunteers work in small groups or 1:1 with youth learners under 18. To become a volunteer tutor, we complete a volunteer intake process and training as per United for Literacy policy. This includes a background check which is paid for by our parent organization.
