VLC trained literacy volunteers facilitate secure online reading groups of up to 3 children each. Depending upon the reading and grade level (2-5), the sessions are held two times a week for a six week period. Each session is up to one hour. Children are encouraged to keep to their respective groups and to attend all sessions.
This program is open to learners from Greater Victoria (School Districts 61, 62 and 63). Learners can use desktops, laptops or tablets. We have observed that cell phone users do not have the best experience and may not be able to see fellow participants. Tutors will screen share an electronic version of the books during sessions, so there is no need for learners to have a copy at home.

Learners do not pay a fee as this program is subsidized, relying on public grants and private donations.
