The ELF offers a low-cost, highly effective solution to ending Canadian poverty. Utilizing literacy as a tool for youth leadership, empowerment, and critical success skills, the ELF breaks the cycle of poverty our youth experience. We are not a response-based organization, our mission is to prevent, and eventually end, the causes of poverty.


Volunteer Opportunities

Be a volunteer tutor and mentor for the ELF's Sage Youth Programs. Work one-on-one, and in small groups with marginalized children and youth.

We are presently recruiting volunteers who are available immediately, for our afternoon program in downtown Ottawa. This location serves refugee children. The program runs on Mondays thru Wednesdays (1 pm to 3 pm), from now until the end of June. We are closed for the month of July, but we would need volunteers who could resume working with us in August 2018.

We are also looking for volunteer support in the Fall of 2018 to work at our Monday and Tuesday morning program (9:30 am to 11:30am) in the west-end of Ottawa. This location is in a high-school, serving youth with a broad range of exceptionalities.

You will be provided with all necessary training and materials. A vulnerable sector police check and 2 professional references are required.

Please join us and support students with their literacy and life-skills. Come with your patience and good will to teach, mentor, and become a hero.

For more information about the ELF's Sage Youth programs, please visit our website at www.excellenceinliteracy.org. You may contact us by email at sageyouth@hotmail.com or by phone at 613-838-5539.

We look forward to hearing from you!
