How do I get help with my reading and writing?
We are here to help you. Just call us at 905-469-8528.
Our free program is for adults 19 and over who speak English.
You can also find more information on this website under I want to Learn.
How do I become a volunteer tutor?
The Council offers tutor training in the fall each year. Before enrolling in the training program, you will go through our application process, which includes an interview.
Visit the I want to Volunteer section for all the details. We’d love to meet you!
What is the time commitment of a volunteer tutor?
As consistency is key to student learning, we ask our tutors to make a one-year commitment. The optimum tutoring time would be four hours (two sessions) per week and the minimum required is two hours (one session) per week.
When is your used book sale and how do I donate books?
We hold a used book sale every year in June to raise funds to support our program. We don’t have year-round book storage, so we ask that people donate books during April or May. Visit the Used Book Sale section for all the latest information.
What is the easiest way to make a donation to the Oakville Literacy Council?
There are lots of easy ways make a donation. Visit the I want to Support section to learn how. To donate online using your credit card, check out Canadahelps.org.
