Toronto Public Library- Leading to Reading

About the Program

Leading to Reading is a literacy-based program that assists children in Grades 1-6 who are struggling with reading.

Through the assistance of adult and teen volunteers, the Leading to Reading program strives to turn reading and learning into a fun and positive experience. The program relies heavily on the assistance of volunteers. Volunteers admitted to the program are paired off with a child who they meet with once a week, for an hour, at the library. Under the supervision and guidance of Leading to Reading staff, the volunteer assists the child with further developing their reading skills.
