Volunteer Posting: Racing Readers Program in Surrey

January 12, 2018

Interested in working with school-aged children? Apply to become a Racing Readers Volunteer!

Racing Readers is a program created in partnership between the SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre and the Surrey School District. This after-school program is designed to fill the need for an increased level of physical activity, literacy and numeracy skills among children in grades 2-5.

For the 2017/2018 year, Racing Readers will operate from October to June at two sites: 

  • Betty Huff Elementary School on Tuesdays 2PM-5PM
  • Newton Elementary School on Wednesdays 2PM-5PM 

As a volunteer, you are welcome to be at one or both sites and volunteer availability can be flexible. This is your opportunity to make a difference in the Surrey community and to meet new people! Volunteers will receive credit on their SFU co-curricular record.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send an email to with a brief summary of yourself: name, program, whether you are an SFU student (what year) or alumni, any relevant previous experience or training, and your contact information (email and phone number). Be sure to include if you are interested in volunteering on both Tuesdays (Betty Huff Elementary) and Wednesdays (Newton Elementary) – or just on one day per week.

The deadline to apply for this opportunity is Thursday, January 25, 2018. To find out more about the program and volunteering, please visit the Racing Readers webpage.
