Writers' Exchange

Call for Literacy Mentor Volunteers: Share your love of reading and writing with kids who need your help, and volunteer for the Writers’ Exchange! The Writers’ Exchange runs free literacy programs for at-risk kids in East Vancouver.

Date & Time: We are currently looking for volunteers who can commit to an after-school program once a week for a full term, Mondays to Thursdays from 3:00 until 4:30PM. We also have short-term in-school projects, which require a commitment of one and a half hours for four or five weeks during a specific school day (Monday to Friday, between 9:00 and 3:00).

Volunteer Duties

As a volunteer mentor, you will help with reading, creative writing projects, literacy games, art projects and cool crafts, or support a small group of kids during in-school book-making programs. Help us make literacy fun and accessible for kids!

Volunteer Benefits

This is also a great opportunity to meet like-minded people interested in reading, creative writing, and working with kids.

How to apply: If you love working with kids, reading and writing, and are looking for a way to make a difference in someone’s future, join the volunteer team at www.vancouverwe.com/volunteer, or contact Alysha at aseriani@vancouverwe.com. Orientations happen every month, so you can join anytime!
