‘wee read’ is about reading aloud and sharing the joy of reading with kindergarten and Grade 1 students. Most of our reading volunteers start as ‘wee read’ volunteers,they receive training and commit to 30 minutes per week for 8 weeks.
‘Read Up!’ is about reading with a young reader in Grade 1 or 2. Volunteers usually have experience in the ‘wee read’ program. ‘Read Up!’ volunteers receive advanced tutoring training and commit to two 45 minutes sessions, for at least 35 sessions.
