Oakville
Our Reading Rocks program is an 8 week literacy intervention program that is designed to motivate and increase the reading skills of children between the ages of 6 and 12 years who struggle with early literacy skills due to an identified or suspected reading disability (dyslexia). 
 
As a volunteer literacy tutor, you will be working one-one-one with a child for the duration of the program, developing hands-on, active activities and games that explicitly teach phonics (or phonemic awareness), increase sight word vocabulary, and improve reading fluency based on their level of need, while also helping the child set realistic goals and graph their success in each reading area on an engaging poster board based on their interests. 
 
Along with directly teaching the child, you will be required to conduct an informal assessment. The first night of the program involves a pre-assessment to determine where the child's needs are and where to base the activity plan. The same assessment will be done on the last day of the program (post-assessment) to measure the child's gains in the program. 
 
As a Volunteer Literacy Tutor, you are required to volunteer twice per week in the evenings (every Monday and Wednesday from 6:15 - 7:45 pm for the full 8 weeks, as the structure of the program is consecutive. 
 
You must be a minimum of 17 years old, and have a vulnerable sector clearance (18 years or older).

Peer Mentor   Burlington 
Bridge (The), Halton, From Prison to Community
In the community in Halton or meet with clients at the Burlington office 460 Brant St. Unit 209
The Bridge Halton Allyship Program has two different streams: 
1. COMPANION  
A companion does not require personal experience with the justice system. Companion’s become an ally by providing support to program participants as they reintegrate into the community. 
 
2. PEER MENTOR 
A peer mentor is someone who has lived experience with the justice system and wishes to use that experiential knowledge to provide peer support to program participants. 
 
Peers and companions will meet with program participants in the community once a week for a minimum of an hour. There will be "check-ins" and "check-outs" with the volunteer coordinator. There will be a monthly meeting for volunteers to get together and debrief their volunteer experience.  
 
Peers and companions support program participants with their reintegration goals and do not perform counselling or case management duties. Peers and companions will support clients to be independent and provide guidance when a program participant is struggling. The only difference between the two roles is a peer has experiential knowledge and a companion does not have that lived experience. Therefore, the dynamic of the relationship will be slightly different. However, both roles are equally important to help program participants reintegrate back into the community and reduce the barriers of oppression.

Students are encouraged to slow down and to look for the elements of design in nature, and they are reminded that nature has always acted as inspiration for art, design, and architecture. At the end of each workshop, there is a celebration with a slideshow of each students' 10 favourite images, and we give "extension activities" to teachers and students so that they can continue to learn.
