Position Title Adult Literacy Coach (Lead program)
Job Description

READ Saskatoon provides one-to-one adult instruction. Volunteers are matched with an adult learner to meet weekly. Learning sessions last between one and one and a half hours and take place in mutually agreeable public locations (such as branches of the Saskatoon Public Library) or online via Zoom; COVID protocols for in-person meetings will be observed. A six (6) month volunteer commitment is required. Volunteers attend a free full day training on tutoring methods and techniques, and they have ongoing support from READ Saskatoon in their development as coaches.

Skills Required Effective coaches share literacy skills while creating a positive learning experience. A one-on-one setting with an adult learner requires the coach to see the learner more as a partner than as a student; effective coaches understand they need to focus on the learner's goals and are patient, respectful, adaptable, culturally sensitive, realistic, and organized.
Benefits to Volunteer Be part of a caring and trained volunteer network that helps adult learners with their reading, writing, and other literacy skills. Together we will make a difference!
