Chilliwack Learning Society board and working committee members span the gamut of occupational backgrounds, but share one thing in common: a passion for literacy.
Board members are responsible for the overall philosophical direction taken by the CLS and meet six times a year. Working committees consist of the Adult Literacy task group and the Financial Literacy Committee. Working committees meet monthly.

The Volunteer Tutor Program is a volunteer based literacy outreach program. Trained volunteers tutor and mentor adults in our community, including adults returning to complete academic goals, newcomers wanting to improve their English, and adults with other learning goals who would appreciate a little help from someone else.
The program has a “learner centered” approach, which means that there is no curriculum, but that learners and tutors work on goals as decided upon by the learner. Learners and tutors work together in one-on-one pairs, in small groups, or in classrooms.
Matching learners with tutors, and tutors with programs is part of the work of the Volunteer Tutor Program Coordinator. The matching process takes into consideration the preferences, skills and availability of learners and tutors, as well as the needs of the organization.
Ongoing training, resources and support are provided to the tutors by the Chilliwack Learning Society.
