The Halifax Community Learning Network is a community-based non-profit organization that provides literacy programs to adults in partnership with Halifax Public Libraries. Volunteer tutors are needed to work one-on-one with adults who want to improve their reading, writing, math, or other essential life skills. Requirements: Grade 12 education or more; excellent oral and written communication skills in English; ability to commit to a scheduled two-to-three hour weekly time commitment for at least six months; an understanding of the needs of the learner and the challenges they have had in the learning process; patience and flexibility to support the learning needs of the learner as some learners take longer to reach their goals than others; creativity in developing lesson plans to motivate and engage the learner; and effectively work with people from diverse backgrounds.

Tutoring can be a very rewarding experience. It can give you the opportunity to make a real difference in a person’s life, and enrich your own. We will provide you with training, resources and on-going support.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying. Lisa Shannon, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
