Volunteer Opportunities

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the pandemic, several of our volunteer opportunities are unavailable or are being offered with modifications.

Please contact Rebecca Dixon, our Literacy Services Coordinator, for up-to-date information.


The work that Literacy Alberni does in our community would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers. Our volunteers provide direct one-to-one assistance to our learners, keep our Little Library program functioning, and manage the generous book donations made by the community. Our program could not exist without their hard work!

As a volunteer, you are joining a team of passionate people who are working to change lives. We offer a monthly volunteer brunch that provides training, opportunities for fellowship, and a chance to build community.

We also have monthly coffee celebrations as an opportunity to bring together our volunteers and learners, and to highlight the progress our learners have made.

Please check out our volunteer opportunities below. We have a wonderful group of volunteers and would love for you to be a part of it!
