Mentoring Wisdom
Train a volunteer literacy tutor-mentor "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." Mahatma Gandhi ELF programs strive to bring the gift of literacy through free mentoring programs to high-need children and youth. Without the help of our talented, dedicated volunteer tutors and mentors across Canada, we could never deliver the gift of literacy—and hope—to these wonderful young people. Your gift of $50 will defray the cost of training one literacy volunteer tutor-mentor. Once trained, many of our volunteers become influential literacy advocates among their peers in their communities!

In Support of The Excellence in Literacy Foundation
The ELF provides community partners across Canada with free, user-friendly and effective literacy teaching tools for children and youth living in low-income, new Canadian, Indigenous, homeless and special needs communities. In the the last ten years, we have written, developed and produced literacy teaching workbooks with engaging content relevant to the lives and circumstances of the children we serve, created training sessions to explain the ELF teaching method to teachers and volunteers of community partner agencies, and designed literacy assessment, evaluation and teaching tools for partners to measure student progress. Our unique workbooks focus on Canadian-relevant themes about Indigenous, multi-cultural issues, Canada’s parliamentary system and civic responsibilities. They encourage respect and inclusiveness, recognize the four simple steps toward attaining good literacy skills and are easy-to-use for community volunteers from various educational backgrounds. The workbooks teach: • verbal, phonetic, comprehension and writing skills, • confidence, leadership and vocational skills, and • fundamental financial skills. Since 2002—through ELF supported programs—over 35000 children nationally have received literacy tutoring and mentoring via 250 community partners. This support will help these children succeed at school, develop confidence and become productive, conscientious citizens. In the last year, the ELF received over 150 additional partner requests for literacy support. Your support could help to fulfill many of these requests!
