Volunteer with the Brock Learning Lab

Are you interested in tutoring and gaining experience working with children?

The Brock Learning Lab is looking for volunteers to participate as a tutor in its Reading Support Program and Math Support Program as well as its School Support Reading Program.

Tutoring and internship opportunities are available for the Reading Support Program and Math Support Program at the Brock Learning Lab, located at the Brock Research & Innovation Centre (130 Lockhart Drive, St. Catharines). These programs use games, activities and technology to reinforce skills for students in an engaging and enjoyable way.

The Brock Learning Lab has also partnered with the Niagara Catholic District School Board to provide Reading and Literacy support in the classroom at local elementary and secondary schools. These sessions are offered on-site at these schools.

Volunteers plan and facilitate one-hour weekly sessions with support from the Brock Learning Lab. Times vary (mornings, early afternoons, and evenings). Tutors work with the same client for a total of nine weeks during the fall or winter semester or for five weeks during the spring.

View the Brock Learning Lab Volunteer & Internship Tutor Information page to learn more and volunteer for the fall session (September 24, 2018 – November 30, 2018). Clients and their families may contact the Learning Lab directly (905 688 5550 x3548) to begin the registration process for the literacy and/or numeracy tutoring program or literacy assessment.
