Fort St. John Literacy Society Launches After School Homework Help Program

The Fort St. John Literacy Society in partnership with the North Peace Cultural Society; is thrilled to announce the launch of a peer to peer after school homework help program.

This program aims to provide homework tutoring to students needing a little extra help outside of school hours. We also recognize that many learning processes have changed over the years, and welcome parents to participate as well, so they may continue to be a resource to their children at home.

Peer to peer tutoring will be taking place at the North Peace Cultural Centre on Monday and Wednesdays from 4-5:30 pm starting Monday November 26th.  To register as a learner, please call 250-785-2110 or email to ensure a tutor in the subject needed is available.

“We are so excited to be able to offer this service, and thankful to all of the volunteer tutors that have already signed up to help out!” said Jessica Kalman, Executive Director. Based on the current tutors available, this program will be providing homework help for students in grades 3-9; with a plan of expanding up to grade 12 over the coming months. “We are always actively seeking tutors for our various programs and encourage anyone who is interested in helping out to contact us as well” added Kalman.

The Fort St. John Literacy Society is a non-profit organization which has been dedicated to promoting literacy for all individuals and groups throughout Fort St. John and the local region since 1990.
