Reader - Children's Garden Program (St. Paul's University)
United for Literacy Ottawa is currently looking for a reader for our Children’s Garden program located in the Glebe near St. Paul’s University (321 Main St, Ottawa, ON K1S 1C8).
The Children’s Garden Program, in partnership with Let’s Talk Science at uOttawa and CarletonU will run once a week for about an hour during the summer in July and August. The date and time of the program is TBD, but we are happy to choose a time based on the volunteers’ availability. This program focuses on biodiversity and nature related themes, and each week there is a chosen theme. You, the United for Literacy volunteer will read a story (this is pre-chosen each week and someone will bring the book for you) and then the Let’s Talk Science volunteers/staff will lead a hands on activity or experiment related to the theme afterwards. You will be working with children ages 6-10.
This is also an ideal environment to contribute meaningfully to your community. We require no prior teaching experience and provide you with all of the training and materials you need. Just bring your communication skills, patience, enthusiasm and love of learning!
