Elementary Literacy Inc.
Elementary Literacy Inc. is a New Brunswick-based not-for-profit organization that provides early literacy, evidence-based programming, matching students in grades 1-3 with volunteer tutors. These free literacy programs are offered to children with learning disabilities, Indigenous children, children from immigrant families and children from historically disadvantaged or low socioeconomic backgrounds. In response to COVID-19, they adapted their traditional in-person tutoring programming to a virtual format.
