Reading Mentors: Volunteer Information

Why Get Involved With NU Reads?

There are many reasons why our Reading Mentors become involved with NU Reads, but one thing is clear; every Reading Mentor takes away valuable experience that can be applied to various settings from volunteering with the program.

  • To gain valuable experience working one-on-one with children aged 4-12
  • To utilize various teaching strategies learned through education classes in a setting outside of the classroom and build upon prior experiences working with children
  • To take away ideas and practices that can be used in future placements and teaching opportunities
  • A way to become actively involved in the greater community of North Bay
