Langley Literacy Network commits to building on community strengths to encourage lifelong learning by ensuring that residents of all ages have access to meet their literacy needs. They strive to create learning and literacy opportunities for all in Langley.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Community One-on-One Learning (COOL) Program
- Wrap-a-Read Volunteer
- Reading Buddies
- Conversation Circle Facilitator
- Volunteers bring positivity, optimism, enthusiasm, and share diverse perspectives that result in enhanced learning outcomes for the community.
- Langley Literacy Network creates a learning environment where volunteers are trained and supported, contribute in meaningful ways, are valued, and have the opportunity to develop their skills.
- Community One-on-One Learning (COOL) Program: COOL pairs adult learners aged 19+ with a trained volunteer tutor. They meet for 1 to 2 hours a week, and it contains one on one personalized/individualized learning for the specific needs of the learner (which is created by the tutor).
- Wrap-a-Read Volunteer: Families registered with the Langley Christmas Bureau can pick a new book for their child during the Toy Depot Days. Volunteers assist families with selecting books for their children.
- Reading Buddies – Teen Volunteer Opportunity: This program pairs high school students with kids in grades 1-3 who need extra help with reading. Reading buddies must be available 1 hour per week to read with a young reader.
- Conversation Circle Facilitator: Lead group sessions for ESL speakers wishing to improve their English. Volunteer facilitators are needed once a week for 1-2 hours.
