How You Can Help


​We are looking for passionate people who will help us put our learners on the path to success.


Whether it be to excel on a professional basis, reading to their grandchildren, getting their driver’s license, or passing their CAEC, our organization can help all learners reach their goals, and we are pleased that you are interested in joining our community of tutors.


You do not need to be a teacher, hold a degree or have previous experience. You will be given full training (approximately 20 hours) before you begin and continuing education opportunities are available for all of our tutors. If you are a good communicator and confident in your ability to empathize with adults with literacy difficulties then you can make a difference.


But tutoring isn’t the only option you have when you volunteer with READ Saint John. There are many ways you can support READ Saint John and make a difference. You will work with passionate individuals and contribute your enthusiasm, skills, and time to promoting our services and breaking the stigma of low literacy.




We need volunteers to assist in the following areas: 


Volunteering for the Board of READ Saint John gives you the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, project planning, task management, and organization. Board members are as important as staff positions to a non-profit organization and are highly competitive so have your resume ready to apply. ​


Show your independence and altruism by organizing your own event to support READ Saint John. 

You could run a garage sale, a carwash – the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

​In addition to raising money for a good cause, organizing this type of event shows initiative, drive, and management skills. Please let READ Saint John know what you are planning so they can provide support, if able. Contact READ Saint John for further details. 

Help Us Get To Know You Better Thank you for choosing READ Saint John. This preliminary step gives us a chance to get to know you before we proceed to the next steps. As soon as we have had a chance to review your information, someone from our organization will be in touch with you. We are honoured that you are here and are willing to share your knowledge to enrich the lives of others.

Thanks for submitting!
