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.

We are also looking for volunteer support from September 2018 to May 2019 to work for our Monday and Tuesday morning program (9:35 am to 11:35 am) 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.
