Reading Pals Program Announces Internship Program

Nov 26, 2014

For many years, Red Deer Public Library has offered a free, fun tutoring program called Reading Pals. The Reading Pals program is aimed at elementary school children (grades 1-6) including ESL learners, who are experiencing reading and/or writing difficulties.

The Library is pleased to be running this program again in January, March and April of 2015 and is currently seeking volunteers to provide 10 hours a month to help improve reading skills.  They are looking for High School or adult volunteers to work as tutors with 1-2 students for one or more months.  No special education is needed, and full training is provided. 

It is with great excitement that they'd like to announce a NEW initiative for Grade 12's and Post-Secondary Students!!!  

They are offering internships with Volunteer Alberta, in which you can earn $1000 towards your post-secondary tuition.  

For more information on this exciting program, visit , select the 'Find an Internship ' option, and search “Reading Pals” and “Red Deer”.

Contact Lucinda Sheardown at lsheardown(at), or 403-309-3488, for more information, or to volunteer for this exciting opportunity.
