Reading Mentors: Volunteer Information

***All NU Reads programs are currently on hold due to a change in leadership. Please check back for updates.

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. As a reading mentor, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • gain experience working one-on-one and/or in small groups with children aged 4-11;
  • utilize various literacy-focused teaching strategies learned through education classes in a setting outside of the classroom and build upon prior experiences working with children;
  • take away literacy-focused ideas and practices that can be used in future placements and teaching opportunities; and,
  • become actively involved in the greater community of North Bay!

We offer both Saturday sessions at the North Bay Public Library and P.D.Day Events here on campus. Specific dates are determined each year.
