The Teen Advisory Group has been developing a Reading Buddies program, aimed at providing reading help and tutoring to younger students. This is the training session for the Big Buddies, who will be coaching younger children in need of extra reading support and practice. A guest trainer from the Comox Valley Learning Centre will lead the workshop, sharing her extensive knowledge of tutoring and literacy development.
The Teen Advisory Group is open to youth in grades 8-12. Youth who wish to participate as Big Buddies will need to complete a criminal record check.
The first Reading Buddies session will run Feb 20-March 13 on Wednesdays from 4-5pm. Teens who are unable to commit to those dates but may wish to participate in a future session are welcome to attend this training.
