Helping kids shine through virtual volunteering
Our volunteers are using virtual volunteering for this new school year, so that K-12 students continue to get the learning support they need.
Last school year, from September to March, our Volunteers in Education worked an estimated 1.1 million hours. We cannot allow this essential contribution to K-12 education to pause during this challenging year.
We are working with administrators and teachers to implement virtual one-on-one tutoring sessions in the classroom, as well as volunteer-led virtual clubs and skill-sharing sessions.
We’re excited to share that ONFE’s Volunteers in Education program is currently conducting a pilot project with six OCDSB schools to begin offering virtual after school tutoring, providing an additional resource to students in schools, and assistance to students learning at home. Stay tuned for further announcements after the completion of the pilot.
Help us recruit and train volunteers to help students who need extra support.
About the Program
“…I just want to thank you for this opportunity! I find it a really great break from university stress just being around happy children and playing music like I used to. 🙂 It’s really made me happier and I’m so thankful!”
