Our program is centered around helping young children master their literacy skill by learning to love reading.We provide assistance in learning related challenges our participants encounter. We believe that by showing interest and giving support all children can excel and be excellent students who will go on to be successful adults.

We are changing lives by contributing time and resources available within our community in the form of students helping students. Our program uses high school students who are eager to pass on advice to younger children. We also have dedicated adult volunteers who are passionate about improving the standard of literacy in our world.

The Pickering Reading Circle is a volunteer program that provides free one on one assistance to its participants. The program focus on children from the ages of 4 years old to 12 years old. We provide assistance in English and French.

Our greatest asset is our volunteers as without volunteers our program cannot exists. If you are passionate about children and their literacy please read with the children in your life. It is proven that as little as 15 minutes a day will help to improve their reading skills. By helping someone learn to read you are making a difference in the path that is available to them. Volunteer to rise the statistics and change the world one child at a time.
