Racing Readers

Racing Readers is a program created in partnership with the Surrey School District and the SFU Surrey – TD Community Engagement Centre. 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. 

Racing Reader Volunteers help lead students through the Racing Readers after-school program. They help organize activity teams, coach physical activities and minor games, lead students through numeracy and literacy activities, and generally be a positive role model for respectful and fun learning. 

Lead Volunteers help create a comfortable and open environment for students to work and learn with one another. By participating, leading, and supporting the various programs and activities, they develop strategies to solve problems, assist the Coordinator with addressing behavioural issues, and incorporate diverse teaching methods and strategies.
