Become a Mentor

Volunteer mentoring is essential to the success of many of our program activities. Volunteering with VDICSS is a way to share your talents, gain workplace experience and contribute to your community.

We are looking for mentors to guide newcomers as they make adjustments to life in Canada. We encourage social interactions between newcomers and established members of the community so mentors can showcase the amenities and attractions our great community offers.

Become a Tutor

Many of our clients are looking for additional supports and opportunities to learn and practice their English skills.

 

Whether it is a client from one of our LINC classes needing extra one-on-one guidance or tutoring students through fun, interactive games in our Homework Club, we have a variety of opportunities for volunteer mentors.

Volunteers tutors are placed based on experience and interests with clients. Previous experience teaching is appreciated but what we’re really looking for are people who have excellent English language skills and are patient and understanding of someone learning a new language.
