How to Volunteer

We need volunteers at Get Set Learn to help with all of the duties required to run our programs, such as setting up, serving snack, singing along in our circle time, helping families care for children, and cleaning up after class is over.

But we also need our volunteers to be ready to meet new people and discover new things.

Volunteers for Get Set Learn

  • like to get to know new people
  • recognize that all families are different
  • accept the differences between cultures and social groups
  • are ready with a friendly smile

Experience working with children or families is an asset.

As many of our volunteers will work with children in our programs, we also require a current police check.


About Get Set Learn




Get Set Learn is a series of programs offered by Project READ Literacy Network in Waterloo Region and Wellington County.

Our programs are for families: parents, grandparents, and children.

Learning begins at birth. You are your child’s first and most important teacher.

Get Set Learn programs for families give parents and grandparents ideas for learning together at home while having fun as a family.

Our programs for families with pre-school children and babies help families get ready for school.

Our programs for families with school-age children offer parents and grandparents ideas for helping children succeed in school.

All of our family programs include

  • songs
  • play
  • books
  • parent sharing and support

In the first hour of our family programs, families play and learn together. In our second hour parents meet separately while children play in a supervised play room. In this parent-only time, and in our adult-only workshops, parents and grandparents learn together, share ideas, and meet new friends.
