The Ottawa Volunteers in Education (OVIE) program brings volunteers from the community into classrooms, to help educators ensure the academic success and well-being of their students.
Volunteering is fun and rewarding. Volunteers get to witness the moments when a student learns a new concept, reaches an important goal, and grows their confidence in a school subject.
Volunteers join a community of like-minded Ottawans who want to make a difference in their city by supporting public education.
They receive special training, regular check-ins, and other ongoing support from OVIE along the way.
Volunteering with us is flexible, and we have a variety of opportunities to fit with your schedule.
ONFE’s ability to respond to the immediate and ongoing, complex needs of educators and students is an important piece in removing barriers that inhibit learning.
The Ottawa Volunteers in Education (OVIE) program ensures that all youth have the chance to finish school with the tools, knowledge and skills they’ll need to complete their studies and go on to fulfilling careers.
